Indian Penal Code read with Section 3, Section4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In Re: Chakatu Roy Ors. … … Petitioners.
Mr. Anindya Ghosh
Mr. P. Roy
… for the Petitioner.
Mr. Sudip Konar
… … for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that they are the in-laws of the
victim and have no connection with the alleged crime and have been falsely
implicated in the instant case.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail.
Considering the materials on record, specially the post mortem report as
well as the extent of complicity of the petitioners in the alleged crime, we are
inclined to entertain the anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioners be
released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand
only) each, with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom must be local, to
the satisfaction of the arresting officer and also be subject to the conditions as
laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on
condition that the petitioners shall appear before the court below and pray for
regular bail within a period of four weeks from date. In addition, the petitioners
will report to the Investigating Officer at such time and place as may be specified
by the concerned police officer, till the investigation is completed.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
