B.A No.7111 of 2019

Dated this the 16th day of October, 2019

ORDER

The petitioners herein have been arrayed as accused Nos.2, 3, 5

and 6 among the six accused in the instant Crime No.549/2019 of

Ottappalam Police Station, Palakkad, which has been registered for

offences punishable under Secs.498A, 406, 420 149 of the SectionIPC, on the

basis of the First Information Statement given by the lady de facto

complainant on 07.09.2019 at about 9.50 p.m., in respect of the alleged

incident which happened for the period from 24.11.2018 to 11.01.2019.

The lady de facto complainant in this case is the wife of A-1. A-2 to A-6

are father, mother, brother, father’s brother and A-3’s sister’s son

respectively of A-1. A-1 A-4 are now abroad. Petitioners 1 to 4 herein

are accused Nos.2, 3, 5 6 respectively in the said FIR.

2. The prosecution case in short is that after the marriage of the

abovesaid spouses, the petitioners have consistently treated the lady

with cruelty and harassment and that they had misappropriated her

gold ornaments coming to 55 sovereigns and that they have demanded
B.A No.7111 of 2019
3

for more dowry, etc.

3. The learned counsel for the petitioners would point out that

the abovesaid allegations are false and baseless and further that

Annexure-B produced along with this petition is the copy of receipt

issued by the lady de facto complainant in her own handwriting stating

that she has already received back her gold ornaments in question.

4. After careful evaluation of the facts and circumstances of this

case, this Court is of the considered view that the custodial interrogation

of the petitioners herein may not be necessary, for the smooth and

effective conduct of the investigation in this crime. Accordingly, it is

ordered that in the event of the petitioners being arrested in connection

with the abovesaid crime, they shall be released on bail on their

separately executing bond for Rs.40,000/- (Rupees Forty Thousand

only) and on their separately furnishing two solvent sureties for the like

sum, each to the satisfaction of the Investigating Officer concerned.

5. However, the grant of bail will be subject to following

conditions:-

(i) The petitioners shall not involve in any criminal
offences of similar nature.

(ii) The petitioners shall fully co-operate with the
investigation.

B.A No.7111 of 2019
4

(iii) The petitioners shall report before the Investigating
Officer as and when required in that connection.

(iv) The petitioners shall not influence the witnesses or
shall not tamper or attempt to tamper evidence in any
manner, whatsoever.

(v) If there is any violation of the abovesaid conditions by
the petitioners, then the jurisdictional court concerned
will stand hereby empowered to consider the plea for
cancellation of bail at the appropiate time.

With these observations and directions, the above Bail Application

will stand disposed of.
