In Re: Chhaya Mukherjee nee Saha @ Moni Saha
… … Petitioner.
Mr. Navanil De,
Mr. R. Chakraborty,
Ms. Natasa Asad
… for the petitioner.
Mr. Saswata Gopal Mukherjee, Ld. P.P.,
Mr. Aniket Mitra
… … for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is the married sister-in-
law of the victim housewife and did not ordinarily reside at her matrimonial
home. She has been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and
submits that the petitioner had abetted the principal accused i.e. husband of the
victim housewife in murdering her.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature
of allegations in the light of the submission that there is no material to show that
the petitioner was present at the place of occurrence on the fateful day, we are
inclined to grant anticipatory bail to her.
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 and on condition that the petitioner shall
appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a period of four
weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
