C.R.M. 5825 of 2019
In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 04.7.2019 in connection
with Beliaghata P.S. Case No.21 dated 25.01.2019 under Sections
498A/Section406/Section34 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and Section4 of
the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In the matter of : Pritam Munsi @ Munshi Ors.
Mr. Amal Kr. Banerjee.
…for the Petitioners.
Ms. Kakali Chatterjee.
…..for the State.
Liberty to correct the cause title of the petition.
Heard the learned Advocates appearing for the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that the dispute
arose out of a matrimonial discord and stridhan articles have been
returned to the de-facto complainant.
Learned advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer
for anticipatory bail and submits that the incident occurred within
two months of marriage.
We have considered the materials on record and bearing in
mind the nature of allegations in the light of the aforesaid
submissions made on behalf of the petitioners, we are of the
opinion that though custodial interrogation of the petitioners may
not be necessary, petitioners require to co-operate with the
investigation in accordance with law.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the
petitioner viz., Pritam Munsi @ Munshi, Purna Chandra Munsi @
Munshi, Rama Munsi @ Munshi and Shubham @ Shuvam Munsi
@ Munshi shall be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of
Rs.10,000/- each with two sureties of like amount each, subject to
the satisfaction of the arresting officer and subject to the
conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of
Criminal Procedure, 1973 and subject to further condition that the
petitioner No.1 shall meet the investigating officer once in a week
until further orders and on further condition that the petitioners
shall appear before the trial court and pray for regular bail within
four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
