Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
Petitioners undertake to withdraw the application for similar relief before the
learned Sessions Judge, Paschim Midnapore.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the general and
omnibus nature of allegations, 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) Selim Khan @ Salim Khan, (2) Safik @ Saphik Khan, (3) Najni Bibi @
Najima Bibi, (4) Nasrin Khatoon, (5) Namin Khatoon (6) Rahim Khan, 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 be subject
to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure,
1973 and on further condition that they shall appear before the court below and pray for
regular bail within four weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
