C.R.M. 3482 of 2018
In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 06.06.2018 in connection
with Islampur P. S. Case No.1176 of 2016 dated 06.12.2016 under
Sections 498A/313/307/34 of the Indian Penal Code read with
Section 3 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In the matter of : Mahitosh Mandal Anr.
Ms. Swarnali Chatterjee.
…for the Petitioners.
Mr. Aniket Mitra.
…..for the State.
Heard the learned Counsels appearing on behalf of the
petitioners and the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are the
in laws of the victim housewife and it is submitted that she did not
suffer any burn injuries and there is no forcible abortion.
Learned Advocate appearing for the State produces the Case
Diary and opposes the prayer for bail.
Having considered the materials in the Case Diary and
bearing in mind the nature of allegations in the light of the
aforesaid submissions made on behalf of the petitioners, we are of
the opinion that the petitioners may be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the
petitioners, namely, Mahitosh Mandal and Mina Mondal shall be
released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- each with
two sureties of like amount each 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 appear before the court below
and pray for regular bail within a fortnight from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
