And

In the matter of: Prasanta Mahata.

….petitioner.

Mr. Pravas Bhattacharya

…for the petitioner.

Mr. Imran Ali
Mr. M.F.A. Begg
…for the State.

The petitioner seeks anticipatory bail in connection with Goaltore P.S.

Case No.184 of 2017 dated 26/10/2017 under Sections 498A/354/307/34 of

the Indian Penal Code read with Section 3/4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.

The petitioner is a relative of the husband of the complainant and the

complaint is that the petitioner attempted to outrage the modesty of the

victim.

Considering the nature of the complaint and the material against the

petitioner, there does not appear to be any need for the petitioner to be taken

into custody at this stage.

Accordingly, in the event of arrest, the petitioner is directed to be

released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten

Thousand only), with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees Five Thousand Only)

each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the Arresting Officer,

subject to the conditions laid down in Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal

Procedure, 1973.

In addition, the petitioner will attend the trial on every day that the
matter is fixed and any default on the part of the petitioner will entitle the trial
court to cancel the bail without reference to this court.

The petition for anticipatory bail is allowed on the conditions

indicated above.

A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to the
petitioner, subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
