***

LISA GILL, J.

Prayer in this petition is for grant of anticipatory bail to the

petitioner in FIR No. 31 dated 02.06.2017 under Sections 498A, 406 IPC

registered at Police Station Women, District Bathinda.

None appears on behalf of respondent No. 2 despite service.

It is submitted that the above said FIR was registered due to

certain misunderstandings between the petitioner and the complainant. It is

further submitted that the complainant, in the meanwhile, has been

persuaded to return to her matrimonial home. She is residing in the

matrimonial home peacefully. The petitioner undertakes to provide a

conducive atmosphere in the matrimonial home. It is, thus, prayed that this

petition be allowed.

This matter was adjourned on 07.09.2017 to enable learned

counsel for the State to verify the factum of respondent No. 2 living in her

matrimonial home.

Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Jagdev

Singh, informs that respondent No. 2 is indeed residing at her matrimonial

home alongwith her husband and family of her in-laws. The petitioner has

joined investigation but no recovery has been effected. It is verified that the

petitioner is not involved in any other criminal case.

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 13.07.2017

is made absolute.

However, liberty is afforded to respondent No.2 to move an

appropriate application in this matter, in case the facts projected before this

Court are incorrect.
