connection with Bhawnipore P.S. Case No. 520 of 2018 dated

Mr. M. Mukherjee
…for the defacto complainant.
Mr. N. P. Agarwala,

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the
allegations are general and omnibus in nature and co-accuseds
have been granted anticipatory bail. It is further submitted that
he is ready and willing to cooperate with the investigation.
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the defacto
complainant opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and submits
that steps are necessary for recovery of stridhan articles.
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the State opposes
the prayer for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials in the case diary and
bearing in mind the nature of allegations, we are of the opinion
that though custodial interrogation of the petitioner may not be
necessary, petitioner requires to cooperate with the investigation
including recovery of stridhan articles.
In the event of arrest, the petitioner 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
also be subject to the conditions as laid down under Section
438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further
condition that he shall meet the investigating officer once in a
week until further orders.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
