C.R.M. 1568 of 2019
In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 04.02.2019 in connection
with Bhagwangola P. S. Case No.09 of 2019 dated 04.01.2019
under Sections 498A/304B of the Indian Penal Code and Section 3
/ 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In the matter of : Gajlu Sk. Ors.
Ms. Minoti Gomes,
Mr. Jisan Iqubal Hossain.
…for the Petitioners.
Mr. Rana Mukherjee,
Ms. Sujata Das.
…..for the State.
Heard the learned Advocates appearing for the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are in
laws of the victim housewife who died at her paternal home. It is
further submitted that the first information report was registered
after five months of the alleged incident.
Learned advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer
for anticipatory bail and submits that the victim committed suicide
within two years of her marriage.
We have 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 petitioners and in view of the
extent of complicity of the petitioners in the alleged crime and the
fact that there is inordinate delay in lodging the first information
report, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the petitioners.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the
petitioners viz., Gajlu Sk., Jarina Bibi, Nijan Sk., Asir Sk., Basir
Sk. and Meherunessa Bibi shall be released on bail upon
furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of like amount
each to the satisfaction of the arresting officer and subject to the
conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of
Criminal Procedure, 1973.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
