2. Brief facts of the prosecution case as per the
complaint averments are that, complainant is the wife of
petitioner/accused. She filed a complaint alleging that
when she had been to her native place for the purpose of
delivery, her husband also came to her native place and on
the date of the incident, he brought the juice and gave it
to her. After consuming the said juice, within 5 to 10
minutes, she had suffered stomach pain and chest pain
and she fell down. At that time, her husband went away
from the said place and her brother immediately shifted
her to hospital through ambulance. Hence, it is her
contention that he made an attempt to commit her murder
by giving such juice. Based on the said complaint, case
came to be registered.

appearing for the petitioner/accused and the learned High
Court Government Pleader appearing for the respondent-
State, so also the order of the learned Sessions Judge,
rejecting the bail application of the petitioner.

petition, FIR, complaint and other materials placed on
5. One of the ground for rejection of the bail
application by the concerned trial Court that petitioner has
not produced any material to show that his wife was
discharged from the hospital. The learned counsel for the
petitioner made the submission that on 16.8.2017 itself,
she was discharged from the hospital, which statement is
not disputed by the prosecution before this Court. He has
denied the allegations made in the complaint and states
that there is a false implication of the petitioner and he is
ready to abide by any of the reasonable conditions to be
imposed by this Court. The alleged offences are triable by
the Magistrate Court and are not exclusively punishable
with death or imprisonment for life. At present, the
condition of the complainant – wife of the petitioner, is
safe and it is out of danger. Hence, by imposing
reasonable conditions, the petitioner can be ordered to be
released on bail.
