C.R.M. 3041 of 2018

In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 17.05.2018 in connection
with Lalgola P. S. Case No.124 of 2018 dated 03.03.2018 under
Sections 498A/307/313 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 /
4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.

In the matter of : Johra Bibi.

… Petitioner.

Mr. Debapriya Samanta.

…for the Petitioner.

Mrs. Sujata Das.

…..for the State.

Leave is granted to the learned Advocate of the petitioner to

correct the cause title of the petition.

Heard the learned Counsels appearing on behalf of the

petitioner and the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is the

mother-in-law of the victim housewife and it is also submitted that

she has been falsely implicated in the instant case. It is further

submitted that there is a delay in lodging the First Information


Learned Advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer

for bail.


We have considered the materials on record. We do not find

any contemporaneous document supporting the allegations of

assault upon the victim by the petitioner. In view of the aforesaid

fact, we are of the opinion that the petitioner may be granted

anticipatory bail.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the

petitioner, namely, Johra Bibi 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.

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