(G.R. Case No. 2714 of 2018)


In Re: Pranab Saha
… … Petitioner
Mr. Kazi Mokhlasur Rahman .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner

Mr. Sukanta Ghosh .. Advocate
… … for the de-facto complainant

Mr. Arijit Ganguly .. Advocate
Mr. Avik Ghatak .. Advocate
… … for the State

Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that there is a matrimonial dispute

between the parties and that he has been falsely implicated in the instant case twenty

years after the marriage.

Learned advocate for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer

for anticipatory bail.

Learned advocate for the de-facto complainant submits that the petitioner is

threatening his client.

Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature of

allegations in the light of the aforesaid submissions made on behalf of the respective

parties and in view of the fact that the allegations of physical assault is not supported by

medical evidence, we are of the opinion although custodial interrogation of the

accused/petitioner is not necessary in the facts of the present case and he may be

granted anticipatory bail, his movements require to be restricted in order to instil

confidence in the mind of the de-facto complainant.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely

Pranab Saha, be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten

thousand only), with two sureties of like amount each, to the satisfaction of the arresting

officer and also subject to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of

Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further condition that the said petitioner shall not enter

the jurisdiction of Malda Police Station until further orders except for meeting the

Investigating Agency or in connection with the court proceedings and shall appear before

the court below and pray for regular bail within a fortnight from date.

The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
