4. I have heard the learned advocates appearing for the respective

parties, perused the investigation papers and have also taken into

consideration the facts of the case, nature of allegations, role

attributed to the applicant- accused. Without discussing the

evidence in detail, at this stage, I am inclined to grant anticipatory

bail to the applicant. This Court has also taken into consideration

alleged to have taken place from 03.09.2018 to 04.09.2019;

the allegation in the FIR no overt act is attributed to the applicant

moreover, allegations if any are very general in nature;

deceased appears to be that her husband whom she suspected to

have an extra marital affair;

(IV) considering the applicant being a lady accused;

(V) Learned Additional Public Prosecutor under the instructions of

the Investigating Officer is unable to bring on record any special

circumstances against the applicant.
