Apprehending arrest in course of investigation of Domkal Police Station FIR No. 1015 of
2018 dated 29th December, 2018 under Sections 498A/Section304B/Section34 of the Indian Penal Code, the
petitioners (parents-in-law and sister-in-law of the victim) have applied for anticipatory bail.
We have heard learned advocates for the parties and perused the materials in the case
diary, more particularly, the statements of the witnesses recorded under Sectionsection 161 of the Code
of Criminal Procedure and the post-mortem report of the victim. The report reveals that no
external injury could be detected by the autopsy surgeon and the cause of death of the victim has
been kept reserved till availability of the chemical analysis report of the viscera. We find from the
statements of the witnesses that the victim, since her marriage, was fragile and for most of the
times since marriage, lived in her paternal home. The only allegation levelled against the
petitioners is that despite knowing such physical condition of the victim, they had brought her to
her marital home. However, the victim’s husband has since been released on bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioners shall be released on bail
upon furnishing a bond of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees five thousand) each, with two sureties of like
amount each, 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.
