Judgment / Order
This anticipatory bail application has been filed by the
petitioner apprehending his arrest in connection with F.I.R.
No.26/2014, P.S. Sanderao, Pali, for the offences under Sections
498A, 304B and 120B IPC.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner, learned Public
Prosecutor and learned counsel for the complainant. Perused the
material available on record.
The petitioner is in no manner related to the in-laws of the
deceased Smt.Urmila, who is alleged to have met with an
unnatural death within a period of seven years from her marriage.
The petitioner is said to be the registered owner of the vehicle
No.RJ22.GA.1725. The petitioner’s driver Mangi Lal was allegedly
driving the said vehicle with which, the deceased collided and
passed away. Babu Singh, brother-in-law (Jeth) of the deceased
informed the complainant Bhopal Singh, the father of the
deceased that she had met with an accident and thereby tried to
mislead him. However, initial charge-sheet appears to have been
(2 of 2)
filed for the offences under Sections 279 and 304-A I.P.C. and the
petitioner apparently has no connection with the alleged dowry
In view of above and having regard to the facts and
circumstances available on record and upon a consideration of the
arguments advanced at the Bar, this Court is of the opinion that it
is a fit case for grant of anticipatory bail to the petitioner under
Section 438 Cr.P.C.
Accordingly, the bail application is allowed and it is directed
that in the event of arrest of petitioner Arjun Singh in connection
with F.I.R. No.26/2014, P.S. Sanderao, Pali, the petitioner shall be
released on bail; provided he furnishes a personal bond in the sum
of Rs.50,000/- along with two sureties of Rs.25,000/- each to the
satisfaction of the concerned Investigating Officer/S.H.O. on the
following conditions :-

the facts of the case so as to dissuade him from disclosing
such facts to the court or any police officer; and
(iii). that the petitioner(s) shall not leave India without previous
permission of the court.
