attributed and that all the offences except one under Section 354 IPC are


Though on behalf of the State, Mr. H.S. Grewal, Addl.

Advocate General, Punjab has sought to oppose grant of bail to the

petitioner on the grounds that custodial interrogation of the petitioner is

required and that they have misbehaved with a woman and thus no cause

for grant of bail is made out.

Appreciating the submissions of the two sides, as per the

MLR relied upon by the petitioner side, the petitioner has received four

injuries which is reflected from the MLR (Annexure P2) and regarding

which an application/representation (Annexure P3) was moved before

the police authorities and which is under consideration. In the light of

the same, being a case of version and cross-version wherein both sides

have received injuries and it is a debatable issue as to which of the

parties is the aggressor, and when nothing is to be recovered from the

petitioner, this Court is of the opinion that no useful purpose will be

served by sending the petitioner behind bars in the present case.

Accordingly, in the event of arrest, petitioner is ordered to be released

on bail to the satisfaction of the Arresting Officer till submission of

report under Section 173 Cr.P.C. (challan). He shall continue to join

investigation and shall furnish an undertaking that he shall abide by the

conditions specified under Section 438 (2) Cr.P.C. Thereafter, the

The petition stands disposed off accordingly.
