In the matter of : Sri Suman Das Ors.

… … petitioners
Mr. Anjan Bhattacharya,
Ms. Anita Shaw
… … for the petitioners
Mr. Suchindram Bhattacharjee
… … for the de facto complainant
Mr. M. R. Abedin
… … for the State

It  is  submitted  on  behalf  of  the  petitioners  that  they  have  been  falsely

implicated in the instant case with a matrimonial dispute.

Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory


Learned counsel appearing for the de facto complainant submits that all the

stridhan articles have not been seized as yet.

We  have  considered  the  materials  in  the  case  diary  and  we  find  that  the

stridhan articles have been recovered as appearing from the seizure list in the case

diary. Keeping in mind the aforesaid fact and the nature of allegations, we are  of

the  opinion  though  custodial  interrogation  of  the  petitioners  may  not  necessary,

petitioner no. 1 is required to co‐operate with the investigating agency in order to

recover further stridhan articles, if any, in accordance with law.

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 subject to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the

Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further condition that the

petitioner no. 1 shall meet the investigating officer once in a week until

further orders.

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