In Re: Zeba Bano @ Zeeba
… … Petitioner
Mr. Tapas Kumar Ghosh .. Advocate
Mr. Tanmoy Chowdhury .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner

Mr. Swapan Banerjee .. Advocate
Mrs. Purnima Ghosh .. Advocate
… … for the State

Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that co-accused namely, Md. Hashim

standing on the same footing with the petitioner has been granted pre-arrest bail

Learned advocate appearing for the State produces the case diary and opposes

the prayer for anticipatory bail.

Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the extent of

complicity of the petitioner in the alleged crime and as she stands on the same footing

with co-accused namely, Md. Hashim who has been granted pre-arrest bail, we are

inclined to extend the same privilege to the petitioner also.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely

Zeba Bano @ Zeeba, 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 she shall not enter

the district of Hooghly until further orders except for the purpose of investigation and/or for

attending court proceedings and shall provide the address where she shall presently

reside to the Investigating Agency as well as the court below and shall report to the

Officer-in-charge of the concerned police station within whose jurisdiction she shall

presently reside once in a week until further orders. Petitioner shall appear before the

Investigating Officer and hand over her passport, if any, within four weeks from date. In

the event she does not have a passport, she shall personally appear before the

Investigating Officer and furnish an affidavit to that effect within the time frame mentioned


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