Gora Singh …..Petitioner

Versus

State of Punjab ….Respondent

CORAM:- HON’BLE MRS. JUSTICE LISA GILL

Present: Mr. Kamaljeet Singh Sidhu, Advocate
for the petitioner.

Mr. Devinder Bir Singh, DAG, Punjab.

LISA GILL, J.

The petitioner, who is the father-in-law of the complainant,

prays for grant of anticipatory bail in FIR No. 0018 dated 19.04.2017 under

Sections 498A, 406 IPC registered at Police Station Women, District

Bathinda.

It is contended that the petitioner has been falsely implicated in

this case only due to his relationship with the complainant. The complainant

named as many as eleven (11) persons in the FIR. On investigation, nine (9)

persons were found innocent and only two (2) have been proceeded against.

The petitioner’s son has been released on bail pending trial. The allegations

in the FIR are patently incorrect and false. Moreover, the petitioner has

joined investigation pursuant to interim order dated 18.05.2017 passed by

this Court. It is, thus, prayed that this petition be allowed.

petitioner relies on a decision of this Court in Prit Pal Singh versus State

of Punjab and another 2014 (5) RCR (Criminal) 771 to urge that the

concession of anticipatory bail should not be denied merely on the ground

of certain recoveries to be effected.

There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the

petitioner is likely to abscond or that he is likely to dissuade the

witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above but

without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just

and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, order dated 18.05.2017

is made absolute.
