In Re: Nilanjana Dey
… … Petitioner.
Mr. Souvik Mitter,
Ms. Anasuya Sinha,
Mr. R.L. Chakraborty,
Mr. P. Kundu
… for the petitioner.
Ms. Sayanti Santra
… … for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is not a relation of the
husband of the victim housewife and she has been falsely implicated in the
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and
submits that the petitioner had illicit relation with the husband of the victim
housewife. As a result the victim was compelled to commit suicide.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature
of allegations, we are of the opinion whether the conduct of the petitioner
constitutes abetment to suicide or not may be assessed at the appropriate stage
of the proceeding. However, in view of the facts and circumstances of the case
and as the victim did not left behind any suicide note implicating the petitioner,
we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to her.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioner 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 condition that the petitioner shall
appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a period of four
weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
