Ashish Sharma …..Petitioner
State of Punjab ….Respondent
CORAM:- HON’BLE MRS. JUSTICE LISA GILL
Present: Mr. S.S. Taank, Advocate
for the petitioner.
Ms. Seena Mand, DAG, Punjab.
LISA GILL, J.
Prayer in this petition is for grant of anticipatory bail to the
petitioner in FIR No. 61/2017 dated 17.08.2017 under Sections 354, 323,
506, 149 IPC registered at Police Station d-Division, Amritsar.
It is submitted that the petitioner has been falsely implicated in
the above-mentioned FIR, which has arisen essentially out of a parking
dispute. Though it is submitted that none of the offences in the FIR are
made against the petitioner, it is contended that especially no offence
punishable under Section 354 IPC is made out on the basis of the FIR in
question. Moreover, the petitioner has joined investigation. He undertakes
to face proceedings. It is, thus, prayed that this petition be allowed.
Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Vijay
Pal Singh, verifies that the petitioner has joined investigation and is not
reported to be involved in any other criminal case.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the
petitioner is likely to abscond or that he is likely to dissuade the
witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.
