Sureshwar Thakur, J (oral)

The   bail   petitioner  apprehends   his   arrest,   for

allegedly committing offences punishable, under Sections 363,

366A, 120B, and, Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code, in case

FIR No. 247 of 2014 of 27.10.2014, registered at Police Station,

Badi, District Solan, H.P., hence motions this Court, through

the instant petition.

the bail petitioner, and, was, a,  minor even at the stage when


she was purpordedly subjected to sexual intercourse(s) by the

bail petitioner.  Moreover, even at the stage when, a, child was

in her womb, from, hers being purportedly subjected to sexual

intercourse, by the accused, she, was a minor thereat.   Even

though   all   the   aforestated   criminal   mis­demnours,   hence,

apparently   occurred   rather   during   the   minority   of   the

prosecutrix, yet, when   the prosecutrix, has, in her statement

recorded   under   Section   164   Cr.P.C.   before   the   learned   trial

Magistrate concerned, makes, a disclosure, therein, qua upon,

hers attaining the age of majority, hers’ solemnizing marriage

with   the   bail   petitioner,   at   Sarkaghat.     Consequently,   the

aforesaid factum is to be borne in mind, importantly, when the

declining, of, apt indulgences, qua, the accused, of, anticipatory

bail,   would,   beget   the   ill­consequences,   of,   disturbing,   his,

marital life, and, also would beget harsh consequences, upon,

the   minor   child,   delivered   by   the   prosecutrix,   on,   hers   being

subjected to sexual intercourse, by the bail petitioner.

3. Bearing   in   mind   the   aforesaid   factum,   this   Court

deems   it   fit   and   appropriate,   importantly,   when   the

Investigating Officer has reported that the bail petitioner, has

throughout associated, hence, in the relevant investigation, to,


hence   afford,   the   facility   of   bail   in   favour   of   the   bail

applicant/petitioner.  Moreso,   when  at   this   stage,  no   evidence

has been adduced by the prosecution, demonstrating, that in

the event of bail being granted to the bail applicant/petitioner,

there   being   every   likelihood   of   his   fleeing   from   justice   or

tampering   with   prosecution   evidence,   Accordingly,   the

indulgence of bail, is, granted to the bail applicant/petitioner,

and, the order(s) rendered on 10.7.2018 in Cr.M.P(M) No. 859

of 2018, are, confirmed, on, the following conditions:­

i) That   he   shall   join   the   investigation,   as   and   when
required by the Investigating agency;

ii) That   he   shall   not   directly   or   indirectly   make   any

inducement,   threat   or   promise   to   any   person
acquainted   with   the   facts   of   the   case   so   as   to

dissuade him from disclosing such facts to the Court
or to the Police;

iii) That   he   shall  not  leave  India  without   the  previous
permission of the Court; 

iv) That he shall deposit his passport, if any, with the
Police Station, concerned;

v) That in case of violation of any of the conditions, the


bail granted to the petitioner shall be forfeited and

he shall be liable to be taken into custody;

vi) That he shall apply for bail afresh when the challan
is filed before the trial Court.

4. In   view   of   above,   petitions   stand   disposed   of.   Any

observation   made   herein   above   shall   not   be   taken   as   an

expression  of  opinion  on  the  merits   of  the  case  and  the  trial

Court shall decide the matter uninfluenced by any observation

made herein above.
