Mrs. Puspita Saha .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is the brother-in-law of the
victim-housewife and that he has been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned advocate for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in mind the extent
of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged crime, 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 bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely
Nityananda Das Adhikary @ Netai Das, be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of
Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of like amount, to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer and also subject to the conditions as laid down under
Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
