HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE FOR RAJASTHAN AT
S.B. Criminal Misc. Bail No. 6150 / 2017
Prema Ram @ Kalu Ram son of Shri Rewant Ram, By Caste
Meghwal, Resident of Village Bhalu Anopgarh, Tehsil Shergarh,
(Confined in Central Jail, Jodhpur)
State of Rajasthan
For Petitioner(s) : Mr. Varun Gupta
For Respondent(s) : Mr. K.V. Vyas, P.P., for the State
HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE P.K. LOHRA
Apprehended for offences punishable under Section 354 IPC
and Section 7/8 of the POCSO Act pursuant to FIR No.110/2017 of
Dechu Police Station, District Jodhpur, petitioner has laid this bail
application under Section 439 Cr.P.C.
It is argued by learned counsel for the petitioner that he has
been falsely implicated and there is no tangible ground to connect
him with the commission of offence. Learned counsel has also
urged that although victim (Prosecutrix) has attributed role to the
petitioner under Section 164 Cr.P.C. but in the backdrop of facts
and circumstances, prima facie, offence under Section 354 IPC is
under serious cloud.
Learned Public Prosecutor has vehemently opposed bail
application of the petitioner.

Having heard learned counsel for the parties and taking into
account facts and circumstances of the case, without expressing
any opinion on merits of the case, I deem it just and appropriate
to grant indulgence to the petitioner by enlarging him on bail.
Accordingly, the bail application under Section 439 Cr.P.C. is
allowed and it is ordered that accused-petitioner, Prema Ram @
Kalu Ram S/o Shri Rewant Ram, arrested in connection with F.I.R.
No.110/2017, Police Station Dechu, District Jodhpur, may be
released on bail; provided he furnishes a personal bond of
Rs.50,000/- with two sureties of like amount to the satisfaction of
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.
