Learned counsel for the revisionists submitted that revisionist no.1 Bablu, is husband of opposite party no.2. Co-accused Vindhyeshwari (mother-in-law) and Omkar (father-in-law) of opposite party no.2 have been granted bail by order dated 15.05.2019 by the coordinate Bench of this Court.
Learned counsel for the revisionists further submitted that maximum sentence awarded to the revisionists by the trial court is three years and the revisionist no.1 was also on bail during his trial as well as during pendency of his appeal before court below. It is pointed out that revisionist no.1 is in jail pursuant to judgement and order dated 20.02.2018.
Learned counsel for the revisionists next submitted that due to heavy pendency of cases before this Court, this revision is not likely to be heard in near future and in case the bail is not granted, this revision is likely to become infructuous.
Learned Additional Government opposed the prayer for bail.
Let the Revisionist no.1- Bablu, convicted and sentenced by order dated 4.8.2018 passed by learned Additional Judicial Magistrate IInd Shahjahanpur in the above mentioned case 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 during the pendency of criminal revision before this Court.
