In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 03.01.2020 in connection with
Taherpur Police Station Case No. 256 of 2019 dated 02.12.2019 under
Sections 498A/406/34 of the Indian Penal Code.
In Re : Benu Halder Ors. …… petitioners
Mr. Abdur Rakib
…..for the petitioners
Mr. Tanmoy Kumar Ghosh
Ms. Sutapa Banerjee
….for the State
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the
general and omnibus nature of allegations and as the medical report
does not disclose any external injury on the victim, we are of the opinion
that custodial interrogation of the petitioners is not necessary and they
may be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the petitioners shall
be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- 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 conditions that
petitioner no. 1 shall meet the investigating officer once in a week until
further orders and they shall appear before the court below and pray for
regular bail within a period of four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, allowed.
