THIS BAIL APPLICATION HAVING COME UP FOR ADMISSION ON
27.11.2018, THE COURT ON THE SAME DAY PASSED THE FOLLOWING:
Bail Appl..No. 7576 of 2018 3

ORDER

This application is filed under Section 438 of the Code of Criminal

Procedure.

2. The applicants herein are husband and wife. They have

been arrayed as accused Nos.2 and 4 in Crime No.687 of 2018

registered at the Panoor Police Station under Sections 420, 323, 498A

and Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code. The de facto complainant is

their daughter-in-law.

3. In her complaint, she alleges that her ‘Nikah’ with the 1 st

accused was solemnized on 5.8.2017 and she was made to believe

that the marriage would be registered within a period of 15 days.

Without registering the marriage, she was allegedly subjected to

sexual intercourse. She also alleges that the 1 st accused used to

subject her to physical as well as mental harassment and a few

months after the marriage, he left the country after ditching the de

facto complainant. Insofar as the applicants herein, who are the

parents of the 1st accused are concerned, the allegation is that they

had assisted and aided the 1st accused to conduct the ‘Nikah’ and to
Bail Appl..No. 7576 of 2018 4

evade from registering the marriage.

4. The learned counsel appearing for the applicants would

submit that the allegations against the applicants are vague. The

allegations are centered around the 1st accused and they have been

roped in solely because the applicants are the parents of the 1 st

accused. According to the learned counsel, the applicants are not

persons with criminal antecedents and there cannot be any

apprehension that they would make themselves scarce.

5. Heard the learned counsel appearing for the de facto

complainant who submitted that the allegations are grave. The learned

Public Prosecutor has also opposed the prayer.

6. I have considered the submissions advanced and have gone

through the complaint which has been lodged by the victim before the

Circle Inspector of Police. Having considered the nature of allegations,

the role assigned to the applicants, the materials in support thereof

and attendant facts, I am of the view that the custodial interrogation

of the applicants are not necessary for carrying out an effective

investigation.

In the result, this application will stand allowed. The applicants

shall appear before the Investigating Officer within ten days from
Bail Appl..No. 7576 of 2018 5

today and shall undergo interrogation. Thereafter, if they are

proposed to be arrested, they shall be released on bail on their

executing a bond for Rs.40,000/- (Rupees Forty thousand only) each

with two solvent sureties each for the like sum. However, the above

order shall be subject to the following conditions:

(i) The applicants shall co-operate with the investigation
and shall appear before the Investigating Officer on every
Saturdays between 9 A.M and 11 A.M. for a period of two
months or till final report is filed whichever is earlier.

ii) They shall not directly or indirectly make any
inducement, threat or promise to any person acquainted
with the facts of the case so as to dissuade him/her from
disclosing such facts to the court or to any police officer.

iii) They shall not commit any similar offence while on bail.

In case of violation of any of the above conditions, the jurisdictional

Court shall be empowered to consider the application for cancellation,

if any, and pass appropriate orders in accordance with the law.
