In the matter of : Soumen Paul Anr.

… Petitioners.

Mr. Abdus Salam.

…for the Petitioners.

Mr. Nirupam Dhali.

…..for the State.

Heard the learned Counsel appearing on behalf of the

petitioners and the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they have

been falsely implicated in the instant case out of a matrimonial


Learned Advocate appearing for the State produces the Case

Diary and opposes the prayer for bail.

We have considered the materials on record. We note that the

medical papers regarding miscarriage of the victim housewife

relates to an incident in 2015 and there is delay in lodging the first

information report qua the alleged incident.

In view of the aforesaid fact, we are inclined to grant

anticipatory bail to the petitioners, however, subject to stringent


Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the

petitioners, namely, Soumen Paul and Manju Paul Roy 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 subject to the conditions as laid down under Section

438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further

condition that the petitioners shall meet the I.O. once in a week

until further orders.

This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
