C.R.M. 2830 of 2018
In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 15.05.2018 in connection
with Serampore Women P. S. Case No.14 of 2018 dated
16.03.2018 under Sections 498A/406/313/506 of the Indian
In the matter of : Jitendra Shaw @ Banti.
Mr. Arup Kr. Bhowmick.
…for the Petitioner.
Mr. Avik Ghatak.
…..for the State.
Heard the learned Counsel appearing on behalf of the
petitioner and the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the instant
case was registered in retaliation to a matrimonial suit filed
against the defacto complainant by the petitioner.
Learned Advocate appearing for the State produces the Case
Diary and opposes the prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record and we find that
the instant case was registered as a counter blast to a matrimonial
proceeding instituted by the petitioner and as the abortion had
allegedly occurred in 2017 and there inordinate delay in lodging
the First Information Report with reference to such accusation.
Under such circumstances, we are inclined to grant
anticipatory bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the
petitioner, namely, Jitendra Shaw @ Banti shall be released on bail
upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of like
amount 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 and on further condition that the
petitioners shall meet the I.O. once in a week until further orders.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
