224 IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA AT
CRM-M-34332 of 2017(OM)
Date of decision: November 30, 2017
State of Haryana
CORAM: HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE A.B. CHAUDHARI
Present: Mr. Kunal Dawar, Advocate for the petitioner.
Ms.Tanisha Peshawaria, DAG, Haryana.
A.B. CHAUDHARI, J (Oral)
Heard learned counsel for the rival parties.
Petitioner seeks regular bail in FIR No.41 dated 20.01.2015,
under Section 406 IPC (Sections 420, 201, 120-B IPC added later on),
registered at Police Station Sector 7, District Faridabad, Haryana.
The challan has been filed. I have seen the impugned order
Annexure P-2. As per allegations of the prosecution, the main accused is
Mukesh Kumar Singh, proprietor of M/s Shree Sudershan Communication,
who is stated to have misappropriated/committed fraud to the tune of Rs.17
crores with the Electricity Organization, DHBVNL. As far as the petitioner
is concerned, he was an employee under him for some time. The petitioner
was arrested on 11.01.2017. Since the case is triable by Magistrate, looking
to the limited role attributed to the petitioner and further to the fact that the
main accused has not been released on bail and rightly so, I think that there
is no point in detaining the petitioner any more.
