Prayer in this petition is for grant of anticipatory bail to the
petitioner in FIR No. 79 dated 16.05.2015 registered under Sections
306/498A IPC and in the alternative under Section 304B IPC wherein the
petitioner has been summoned to face trial under Section 319 Cr.P.C. at
Police Station Division No. 7, Jalandhar.
The petitioner has been summoned on an application under
Section 319 Cr.P.C. It is submitted that the petitioner was earlier afforded
the benefit of anticipatory bail at the initial stage by this Court on
12.08.2016 in CRM-M No. 13677 of 2016 (Annexure P-6). This Court on

counsel for the petitioner submits that pursuant to interim order dated
05.04.2017, the petitioner has appeared before the learned trial Court on
06.04.2017. She has been admitted to interim bail. The petitioner undertakes
to appear on each and every date fixed before the learned trial Court to face
trial. A certified copy of order dated 06.04.2017 passed by the learned
Additional Sessions Judge, Jalandhar produced in Court today is taken on
record subject to just exceptions.
Learned counsel for the State as well as the complainant do not
deny the factual position as above.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the
petitioner is likely to abscond or that she is likely to dissuade the
witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.
Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above but
without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just
and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, interim bail afforded to
the petitioner by the learned Additional Sessions Judge, Jalandhar is made
absolute subject to her furnishing fresh bail bonds and surety.
Needless to say that the petitioner shall comply with the
conditions stipulated in Section 438(2) Cr.P.C.
