Aloke Court 28
In Re : An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 05.03.2019 in connection with
Kharagpur (Town) P.S. Case No.301 of 2017 dated 22.06.2017 under
Sections 498A of the Indian Penal Code and 3/4 Dowry Prohibition


In the matter of: Smt. Anuradha Patra @ Anu Patra @ Anu
Mr. Suman De
… for the petitioner
Mr. R. Nandy
… for the State

Investigating officer is present and clarifies charge-sheet has

been filed only under Sections 498A of the Indian Penal Code and

Section 3/4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act. His presence is noted and

dispensed with.

In the light of the aforesaid extenuating change in the nature

of acquisition levelled against the petitioner, we are of the opinion the

second application for anticipatory bail is maintainable.

We have considered the materials on record and keeping in

mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged crime and

as investigation is complete, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail

to her.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the

petitioner shall be released on bail upon furnishing bond of

Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) 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 she shall appear before the

court below and pray for regular bail within a fortnight from date.

The application for anticipatory bail is, accordingly, allowed.

Urgent Photostat Certified copy of this order, if applied for, be

supplied expeditiously after complying with all necessary legal
