2017 dated 14.12.2017 under Sections 498A/325/368/34 of the Indian Penal Code and

In Re: Sk. Serajul Anr.

… … Petitioners

Ms. Ujjaini Chatterjee .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner

Mr. Arijit Ganguly .. Advocate
Mr. Sanjib Kumar Dan .. 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 have been falsely implicated in the instant case out of a matrimonial


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

for anticipatory bail.

Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in mind the

nature of allegations and the fact that the allegation of physical assault is not supported by

medical evidence, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the

accused/petitioners is not 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) Sk. Serajul (2) Serajul Bibi, 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.
