Counsel for Opposite Party :- G.A.
Hon’ble Karunesh Singh Pawar,J.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned AGA for the State and perused the record.
Learned counsel for applicant submitted that in view of the settlement letter dated 18.9.2019 contained as Annexure 2, the matter has been settled between the parties. Even otherwise, the applicant is not named in the FIR. Learned counsel for applicant further submitted the matter is of civil nature. The applicant has taken some loan from the complainant-Company and he became defaulter and therefore, no offence under Sectionsection 406 IPC is made out against the applicant. The applicant is not a previous convict and has no criminal history and there is no possibility of the applicant fleeing from judicial custody or tampering with the witness.
Shri G.S. Pandey, learned counsel appearing on behalf of complainant -Hinduja Housing Finance Limited submitted that applicant may be granted bail in view of settlement arrived at between the parties.
Learned AGA opposed the prayer for bail but could not dispute the aforesaid facts as argued by the learned counsel for the applicant.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, and also considering the nature of allegations, arguments advanced by learned counsel for the parties and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I find it to be a fit case for enlarging the applicant on bail.
Let applicant Ajay Kumar Upadhyay, involved in Case Crime No.788 of 2017, under Sections 406, Section420, Section467, Section468, Section471, Section120-B IPC, Police Station-Hazratganj, District- Lucknow be released on bail on his furnishing a personal bond and two sureties each in the like amount to the satisfaction of the court concerned with the following conditions which are being imposed in the interest of justice:-

(iv) The applicant shall file an undertaking to the effect that he shall not seek any adjournment on the dates fixed for evidence when the witnesses are present in court. In case of default of this condition, it shall be open for the trial court to treat it as abuse of liberty of bail and pass orders in accordance with law.
