In Re: Sampa Kotal @ Shampa Kotal
… … Petitioner.

Mr. Purnasis Bhuniya
… for the petitioner.

Mr. Pratick Bose
… … for the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is no way

related to the husband of the victim.

Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for

anticipatory bail and submits that the petitioner has an illicit affair

with the husband of the de facto complainant.

Having considered the materials on record and keeping in

mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged assault

on the victim, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the


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

be released on bail upon furnishing a 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. Petitioner shall appear before the investigating

officer and hand over her passport, if any, within a period of four

weeks from date. In the event the petitioner does not have a

passport, she shall personally appear before the investigating officer

and furnish an affidavit to that effect within the time frame

mentioned herein above.

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