LISA GILL, J.

Prayer in this petition is for grant of anticipatory bail to the

petitioner in FIR No. 79 dated 16.05.2015 registered under Sections

306/498A IPC and in the alternative under Section 304B IPC wherein the

petitioner has been summoned to face trial under Section 319 Cr.P.C. at

Police Station Division No. 7, Jalandhar.

The petitioner has been summoned on an application under

Section 319 Cr.P.C. It is submitted that the petitioner was earlier afforded

the benefit of anticipatory bail at the initial stage by this Court on

12.08.2016 in CRM-M No. 13677 of 2016 (Annexure P-6). This Court on

19.12.2016 (Annexure P-7) set aside order dated 30.01.2016 summoning the

petitioner by invoking the provisions under Section 193 Cr.P.C. Learned

counsel for the petitioner submits that pursuant to interim order dated

05.04.2017, the petitioner has appeared before the learned trial Court on

06.04.2017. She has been admitted to interim bail. The petitioner undertakes

to appear on each and every date fixed before the learned trial Court to face

trial. A certified copy of order dated 06.04.2017 passed by the learned

Additional Sessions Judge, Jalandhar produced in Court today is taken on

record subject to just exceptions.

Learned counsel for the State as well as the complainant do not

deny the factual position as above.

There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the

petitioner is likely to abscond or that she is likely to dissuade the

witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above but

without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just

and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, interim bail afforded to

the petitioner by the learned Additional Sessions Judge, Jalandhar is made

absolute subject to her furnishing fresh bail bonds and surety.

Needless to say that the petitioner shall comply with the

conditions stipulated in Section 438(2) Cr.P.C.
