Petitioner has filed the present petition under Section 439(2) for
cancellation of the anticipatory bail granted to respondent No.4, vide order
dated 16.03.2016 (Annexure P-2), passed by learned Additional Sessions
Judge, Fazilka, in case FIR No.9 dated 06.02.2016, registered under Section
498-A IPC (Section 406 IPC added later on), at Police Station City-2,
Abohar, District Fazilka.

As is evident from the order dated 16.03.2016 (Annexure P-2)
that the bail was granted to respondent No.4 keeping in view the fact that
respondent No.4 (husband) had filed a civil suit for mandatory injunction
directing the petitioner-complainant to take back her dowry articles and the
IPC has been added after the filing the bail application.
After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, going through
the record, this Court is of the considered view that no ground for
cancellation of bail is made out. Learned counsel for the petitioner did not
point out any patent illegality or legal infirmity in the impugned order. Such
articulated order, containing valid reasons, cannot legally be set aside in the
garb of petition for cancellation of bail, unless and until the same is totally
illegal and without jurisdiction.
In the light of aforesaid reasons, as there is no merit, therefore,
the instant petition for cancellation of bail is hereby dismissed as such.
