INDERJIT SINGH, J.

Petitioners have filed this petition under Section 438 Cr.P.C.

for grant of anticipatory bail in case FIR No.32 dated 13.03.2017 under

Section 406 IPC, registered at Police Station City Jalalabad, District

Fazilka.

I have heard learned counsel for the petitioner and have gone

through the record.

From the record, I find that FIR in the present case has been got

registered by Punjab State Civil Supplies Corporation Ltd. As per the

allegations, present petitioners constituted a firm under the name and style

of M/s Surya Industries, Tiwana Road, Jalalabad. An agreement was

executed. 212833 bags of paddy weighing 35 kgs. each totalling to

74491.55 quintals were delivered to the accused. As per the allegations,

13800 bags weighing 4830 quintals of paddy has been transferred by the

accused to other district. After transfer of paddy, net storage of paddy was

199083 bags. As per physical verification on 25.01.2015, shortage of

29203 bags weighing 10221.05 quintals was found in the mill and accused

misappropriated the paddy.

Keeping in view the serious allegations against the petitioners

that they misappropriated such a huge amount of paddy, I do not find it a fit

case where petitioners are entitled to benefit of anticipatory bail.
