Heard parties.

This criminal revision application has been filed

for setting aside the order dated 31.03.2019 passed in Trial

No.2146 of 2018 arising out of Chakia Police Station Case

No.91 of 2015 by which learned Additional Chief Judicial

Magistrate, XIII, East Champaran has issued bailable warrant

against petitioners without receiving the report of the earlier


Prosecution case in brief is that on 01.12.2014,

marriage was solemnized between Nalini Gautam (Opposite

Party No.2) and Kunal Singh (accused) as per Hindu rites and

rituals. It is alleged by opposite party no.2 (informant) that after

marriage, she was harassed and tortured for non-fulfillment of

demand of dowry and on such written complaint, Chakia P.S.

Case No.91 of 2015 was registered against petitioners and other

under Sections 498A, 307 read with 34 of the Indian Penal Code

and Sections 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act. After

investigation police submitted charge-sheet against petitioners

and another.

Cognizance against petitioners for offences
Patna High Court CR. REV. No.233 of 2019 dt.26-03-2019

punishable under Sections 498A, 307 read with 34 of the Indian

Penal Code and Sections ¾ of the Dowry Prohibition Act was

taken by order dated 27.01.2018 and summons were issued

against petitioners for their appearance.

It has been submitted that without waiting for

service report, the trial court issued bailable warrant against

them, although no summons were ever served upon them as no

service report was submitted in the court below. It has further

been submitted that all accused petitioners although belong to

same family but they reside at different places and the court

below has presumed that since there is appearance on part of the

Kunal Singh (accused) as such all other accused petitioners

were also aware of order taking cognizance and issuance of

summons and their appearance on date of trial by the trial court

and, thereafter, issued bailable warrant against them.

In the facts and circumstances of the present case,

as only the trial court has issued summons and, thereafter,

bailable warrant against petitioners were issued for their

appearance before the trial court, the petitioners are directed to

appear before the court below on the date as fixed by the trial

court and trial court will proceed further in the matter in

accordance with law.

Patna High Court CR. REV. No.233 of 2019 dt.26-03-2019

With such observations and directions, this

criminal revision petition stands disposed of.
