Ms. Sujata Das
… for the State

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are
the in-laws of the victim-housewife and have been falsely

implicated in the instant case.

Learned counsel for the State opposes the prayer for bail.

We have considered the materials in the case diary

medical papers and keeping in mind the extent of complicity of the

petitioners in the alleged crime, we are of the opinion that

custodial interrogation of the petitioners may not be necessary in
