Learned counsel would therefore submit that prima facie no
case for the offence under Section 306 read with explanation
to Section 498A of IPC is made out and the petitioner be
admitted to bail.

4. Opposing the bail application, learned APP drew the
attention of this Court to the accusation made against the
petitioner in the FIR and the other investigation papers and
would contend that the offence is of a serious nature and
therefore the petitioner should not be admitted to bail.

5. Having considered the rival contentions as also the
nature of accusation against the petitioner and without
discussing the same in greater detail as the parties do not
invite the reasoned order, the petitioner is required to be
admitted to bail.

6. Hence, the application is allowed and applicant is ordered
to be released on bail in connection with C.R. No. I – 51 of
2017 registered with Vagdod Police Station on executing
a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand only) with one
