The counsel for the petitioner urges that all the offences are
bailable and supplementary statement was made and the petitioner is ready to
join the investigation.
On the last date, a video had been played in the Court, which
was captured by someone who was standing on the roof. The trial Court has
also referred to it in its order. The incident had occurred when a three-wheeler
and a car had collided. The driver of the car got out and was speaking to the
driver of the three-wheeler when the passengers of the three-wheeler who
were all related, started beating the complainant. The video shows that a
group consisting of men and a woman pulled out the inmates of the car. One
of the occupant of the car was a lawyer who had made a statement that her
modesty had been outraged. The cross version is said to have been given by
Ranjit Kaur who alleged that she also suffered injuries on her little finger and
there was a fracture. The complaint was given by her after two months of the
incident. No FIR has been registered on her complaint yet. It is not a
complaint but a representation to the Commissioner of Police, which has been
given after the dismissal of the bail application filed by the petitioner. The
lawyer, her brother and the complainant (driver of the car) were beaten up by
people who were carrying kirpans and iron rods. Ranjit Kaur in her
representation to the police has admitted to the presence of the petitioner.
Considering the allegations and the manner in which the occurrence has taken
place, I am not inclined to exercise the discretion and grant anticipatory bail.
The petition is dismissed.
