In Re: Md. Sarfaraz Ansari
… … Petitioner
Mr. Ankit Agarwala .. Advocate
Ms. Alotriya Mukherjee .. Advocate
Mr. Vineet Ojha .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner
Mr. Imran Ali .. Advocate
Mrs. Sutapa Banerjee .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he has been falsely implicated in
the instant case. It is further submitted that no case of miscarriage is made out in the facts
of the present case.
Learned advocate appearing for the State produces the case diary and opposes
the prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record including the medical reports. We
do not find any accusation of miscarriage due to force or assault. Under such
circumstances, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the accused/petitioner
may not be necessary in the facts of the present case and he may be granted anticipatory
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely
Md. Sarfaraz Ansari, be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees
Ten thousand only), 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. Petitioner shall appear before the
Investigating Agency and hand over his passport, if any, within a fortnight from date. In
the event he does not have a passport, he shall personally appear before the
Investigating Agency and furnish an affidavit to that effect within the time frame mentioned
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
