Anticipatory bail to key accused

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 22 - The Gauhati High Court today granted anticipatory bail to Nayanjyoti Bhattacharya, one of the key accused in the Banphul Path triple murder case.

Justice Michael Jothan Khuma, after hearing senior advocate Niloy Dutta and advocate Bijon Mahajan, the counsels for the accused, and after the perusal of the case diary, directed the police to allow Bhattacharya to go on bail upon his appearance.

The court, however, after considering the arguments placed by public prosecutor BS Singha, directed the accused to appear before the police within seven days, and as and when required subsequently. The court, while issuing the bail order, also kept in view the fact that the accused was given only one day�s time by the investigators to appear through a CrPC notice after the triple murder on June 20.

The allegation against Bhattacharya is that there was huge monetary transaction between him and Pranab Mahanta, who had allegedly killed his wife and two daughters on June 20 in their house and has been missing since.

An FIR was lodged against Bhattacharya at the Hatigaon Police Station, alleging that he owed a huge amount of money to Pranab Mahanta.

Bhattacharya, who had moved the court on June 20, is facing charges under Section 320 of the IPC.
