For Petitioner(s) : Mr. Kulwant Singh.

HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE P.K. LOHRA
The petitioner has filed the instant second bail application
under Section 439 Cr.P.C. arising out of FIR No.156/2017,
registered at Police Station Nohar, District Hanumangarh for
offence punishable under Sections 302, 304B 498A/34 IPC.
Police after investigation has submitted charge-sheet in the matter
and presently trial is under progress in Sessions Case No.14/2017
before Additional District Sessions Judge No.1, Nohar, District
Hanumangarh (for short, ‘learned trial Court’).
Pressing this second bail application, it is submitted by
learned counsel for the petitioner that now investigation in the
matter has been completed. Learned counsel further submits that
during investigation, no concrete evidence has surfaced against
the petitioner so as to connect her with the commission of offence
(2 of 3)
and in fact the entire prosecution evidence is prima facie indicting
the husband of deceased and co-accused Kuldeep Singh for the
alleged offence. It is also submitted by learned counsel that
petitioner is in custody since 21 st of March, 2017 and therefore
considering the status of petitioner as woman, her second bail
application merits favourable consideration.
Learned Public Prosecutor has opposed the bail application of
petitioner. It is argued by learned Public Prosecutor that looking
to the seriousness of offence bail application of the petitioner is
liable to be thwarted.

advanced at the Bar and perused the materials available on
Having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case and
considering the fact that petitioner is a woman, without expressing
any opinion on merits of the case, I feel persuaded to enlarge her
Accordingly, the bail application under Section 439 Cr.P.C. is
allowed and it is ordered that accused-petitioner Karam Jeet Kaur
@ Krishna W/o Kulwant Singh, arrested in connection with F.I.R.
No.156/2017, Police Station Nohar, District Hanumangarh, may be
(3 of 3)
released on bail; provided she furnishes a personal bond of
Rs.50,000/- with two surety bonds of Rs.25,000/- each to the
satisfaction of learned trial Court with the stipulation to appear
before that Court on all dates of hearing and as and when called
upon to do so.
