In Re: Shakeel Khan
… … Petitioner

Mr. Sandipan Ganguly .. Sr. Advocate
Ms. Sudakshina Dey .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner

Mr. Arup Kumar Mondal .. Advocate
Mr. Sambuddha Mondal .. Advocate
… … for the de-facto complainant

Mr. Imran Ali .. Advocate
Mr. Mirza Firoj Ahmed Begg .. Advocate
… … for the State

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he has been falsely implicated in

the instant case.

Report is filed on behalf of the Investigating Agency wherefrom it appears that

some stridhan articles have already been recovered. The said report be kept with the


Learned advocate appearing for the de-facto complainant opposes the prayer for

anticipatory bail and submits that gold ornaments have not been seized.

In the light of the aforesaid report and keeping in mind the nature of allegations,

we are of the opinion though custodial interrogation of the accused/petitioner may not be

necessary, he requires to cooperate with the investigation in accordance with law

including further recovery of stridhan articles, if any.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely

Shakeel Khan, 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 and on further condition that he shall meet the

Investigating Officer once in a week until further orders and shall appear before the court

below and pray for regular bail within four weeks from date.

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