In Re: Ranjit Bagdi Ors.

… … Petitioners

Mr. Kunal Ganguly .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners

Mr. Sudip Ghosh .. Advocate
Mr. Bitasok Banerjee .. Advocate
… … for the State

Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are the in-laws of the victim-

housewife and that the incident arose over a dispute between the husband and the victim.

Learned advocate for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer

for anticipatory bail.

We have considered the materials on record including the statements of

neighbours stating that there was a dispute between the husband and the victim

immediately prior to the incident. Keeping in mind the extent of complicity of the

petitioners in the alleged crime and the fact that the principal accused i.e. the husband of

the victim is on regular bail, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the

accused/petitioners may not be necessary in the facts of the present case and they may

be granted anticipatory bail.


Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioners,

namely (1) Ranjit Bagdi, (2) Pinki Bagdi (3) Nandi Bagdi, be released on bail upon

furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only) 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.
