8 Before parting with the aforesaid order, it is pertinent to note

that the submission made by the learned A.P.P in the trial Court that an

application after filing of charge-sheet does not amount to change of

circumstances, is completely untenable and contrary to the legal position.

Similarly, the judgment relied upon by the learned Judge in para 8 of the

order quotes a headnote, which is contrary to the actual order passed by the

Apex Court in the case of Virupakshappa Gouda and Anr. v. State of

Karnataka Anr.1. Nowhere in the said judgment, the Apex Court has

said that filing of charge-sheet is not the change of circumstance.

9 Registry to communicate the above order to the Additional

Sessions Judge-8, Thane, who has passed the order dated 13 th August 2019,

rejecting the applicant’s regular bail.

10 Learned A.P.P to ensure that the above order is communicated

to the A.P.P, who appeared in the said application, before the trial Court.

11 All concerned to act on the authenticated copy of this order.
