Heard learned counsel for the applicants and Ms. Sanyukta Singh learned A. G. A. for the State
Applicants have moved the present anticipatory bail application seeking bail in Case Crime No. 449 of 2019 u/s 498A, 323, 506, 376 SectionIPC and Section 3/4 Dowry Prohibition Act PS Khair District Aligarh.
I have perused the prosecution story as set up in the F.I.R. and also the anticipatory bail rejection order.
Contention as raised at the Bar by learned counsel for the applicants is that the applicants are Jeth and Jethani of the wife; no specific role has been assigned to them; they have been implicated on the basis of general allegations made against them; the matter needs deeper and fairer investigation before any arrest should be given effect to.
Learned AGA has opposed the prayer for anticipatory bail of the applicants.
Keeping in view the reasons as stated above, the facts and circumstances of the case as have been discussed at the Bar of this Court, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, considering the nature of accusation, the applicants are entitled to be released on anticipatory bail in this case.
In the event of arrest of the applicants Raj Kumar and Smt. Chandrakanta involved in the aforesaid case, they shall be released on anticipatory bail on their furnishing a personal bond of Rs. 25,000/- with two sureties each in the like amount to the satisfaction of the Station House Officer of the police station concerned with the following conditions:-
(i) the applicants will join and participate in each and every aspect of “Investigation” and will lend full assistance to the Investigating Agency even with regard to “discovery of fact” if and when required so by the Investigating Agency or the concerned court;
(ii) the applicants shall make themselves available for interrogation by a police officer as and when required;
