… … Petitioners.
Mr. Mohammad Khairul,
… for the petitioners.
Mr. Pratick Bose,
… … for the State.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the extent
of complicity of the petitioners, i.e. in-laws of the victim housewife, in the alleged
crime and as the allegation of forcible abortion is not supported by medical
evidence, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the petitioners.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioners 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 condition that the
petitioners shall appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a
period of four weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
