In Re: Pranab Kumar Ghosh
… … Petitioner.
Mr. Kallol Basu,
Ms. Deboriya Samanta,
Ms. Sharmistha China
… for the petitioner.
Mr. Arijit Ganguly,
Mr. Avik Ghatak
… … for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that there is no material to show
that the victim had been administered deleterious substance by the petitioner.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature
of allegations in the light of the submission made on behalf of the petitioner that
the allegation of administration of deleterious substance is not supported by
contemporaneous forensic records, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to
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 further condition that the petitioner
shall meet the investigating officer once in a week until further orders 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.
