LISA GILL, J. (Oral)

The petitioner seeks the concession of anticipatory bail in

FIR No. 46 dated 22.09.2016 under Section 498-A IPC and Section 406 IPC

added later on, registered at Police Station Women, District Bathinda.

It is submitted that the FIR in question has been registered due

to temperamental differences between the petitioner and the complainant.

There was no demand of dowry by the complainant neither was there any

physical or mental harassment to the complainant. The car in question has

been recovered. Other articles belonging to the complainant have also been

handed over. Moreover, without prejudice to his rights, the petitioner to

show his bona fides, is ready and willing to deposit a sum of `3 lakhs by

way of a FDR in favour of the minor child which should however not be

encashed before the child attains majority. It is thus, prayed, that this

petition be allowed.

It is noticed that this matter was placed before the Mediation

Conciliation Centre of this Court. Effort was made to enable the parties to

resolve their dispute in an amicable manner but the exercise has not been

fruitful. Petitioner and respondent No.2 are present in Court. It appears that

an amicable resolution of the dispute between them is not possible at this

stage.

Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Nirmal

Singh, verifies that the petitioner has joined investigation. The car in

question has been recovered though it is submitted that certain articles are

yet to be recovered. The petitioner is not reported to be involved in any

other criminal case.

There is no allegation that the petitioner is likely to abscond or

that he is likely to dissuade the witnesses from deposing true facts before

the learned trial Court, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the case but

without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, it is considered

just and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, order dated

06.03.2017 is made absolute subject to the petitioner depositing a sum of

`03 lakhs within one month from receipt of certified copy of this order

before the learned trial Court/Area Magistrate by way of a FDR in favour of

the minor child which shall not be encashed till the child attains majority .

The said deposit shall be without prejudice to the rights of the petitioner in

any litigation between the parties.

on trial.
