for the petitioner.
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
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.
Therefore, finding no merit in the present petition, the same is
