Judgment / Order
The present third application for bail has been filed under
Section 439 Cr.P.C. on behalf of the petitioner, who is in custody in
relation to F.I.R. No.33/2015, P.S. Raisinghnagar, District
Sriganganagar, for the offences under Sections 304B and 498A
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner, learned Public
Prosecutor and learned counsel representing the complainant.
Perused the material available on record.
The petitioner being a woman is in custody from 24.8.2015.
After rejection of the earlier bail application submitted on behalf of
the petitioner, material prosecution witnesses have been examined
at the trial.
Learned counsel Shri Sharma drew the Court’s attention to
the statement of P.W.6 Amandeep being the cousin brother of the
(2 of 2)
deceased, who stated that the petitioner went to the matrimonial
house of the deceased alongwith her husband Manish and the
parties were having heated discussion. In the meantime, the
witness went to Shiv Temple. When he came out at about 7
O’clock, the deceased and her husband Manish were seen standing
near the water works diggi. Soon thereafter, the deceased Jyoti
committed suicide by jumping into the diggi. In this background,
the argument advanced by Shri Sharma that the last act just
before the suicide committed by the deceased Jyoti can at best be
attributed to the accused Manish is not without merit and
evidently the case of the present petitioner is distinguishable from
that of Manish.
In view of above and having regard to the entirety of facts
and circumstances as available on record and upon a consideration
of the arguments advanced at the Bar, this Court is of the opinion
that the petitioner being a woman deserves to be enlarged on bail.
Consequently, this third application for bail is allowed. It is
ordered that the accused-petitioner namely Saroj Rani arrested in
connection with F.I.R. No.33/2015, P.S. Raisinghnagar, District
Sriganganagar shall be released on bail; provided she furnishes a
personal bond of Rs.50,000/- and two surety bonds of Rs.25,000/-
each to the satisfaction of the learned trial court with the
stipulation to appear before that Court on all dates of hearing and
as and when called upon to do so.
