…for the Petitioners.
Mr. Arijit Ganguly
Mr. Sanjib Kumar Dan
…..for the State.
Having considered the materials on record prima facie
disclosing involvement of the petitioner no.1, husband of the victim
in subjecting her to physical assault which is supported by medical
evidence, we are not inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the
petitioner no. 1. However, keeping in mind the extent of complicity of
the petitioner no. 2 / mother-in-law in the alleged crime, we of the
opinion that the petitioner no. 2 / mother-in-law may be granted
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioner
no. 2 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 subject to
the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of
Criminal Procedure, 1973. Petitioner shall appear before the
investigating agency and hand over their passports, if any, within a
period of four weeks from date. In the event the petitioner does not
have any passports, she shall personally appear before the
investigating officer and furnish affidavit to that effect within the
time frame mentioned herein above.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
