Shri Vijay Sharma, learned counsel for the appellant.
Shri Abhishek Soni, learned Public Prosecutor for the

This is the second appeal/bail application under Section
14-A(2) of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 by
appellant-Jagdish Sahu, who has been arrested by Police on
23.08.2017 in Crime No.372/2017, Police Station-
Vijaynagar (AJK), District- Indore, in connection with
offence under Sections 376(2)(N) of IPC and under Section
3(2)(5), 3(2)(5-A) of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act,
1989.
Arguments heard with the help of case-diary.
As per the prosecution, the prosecutrix was an
employee of the present appellant. The prosecutrix was a
widow having two children. It was alleged that the present
appellant gave false impression that his wife and children
were not living with him and under a false promise of
marriage, he continuously exploited her sexually. It was also
said that she went pregnant, and thereafter,t he matter was
reported. It was also said that the present appellant threatened
the prosecutrix and her two minor children.
First appeal/application was dismissed by coordinate
Bench of this Court with liberty to repeat the prayer after
statement of the prosecutrix. Now the appellant has filed
21

statement of the prosecutrix recorded before the Court. In his
Court statement prosecutrix has not made any allegation
against the appellant. She has only deposed on oath before
the Court that the appellant was living with her. One day
suddenly he left the house without her knowledge and
without informing her. As she could not find his
whereabouts, therefore, she informed the police about his
missing. Nothing has been stated in the report.
Learned public prosecutor for the respondent/State has
opposed the prayer for bail.
I have gone through the record.
In view of the statement of the prosecutrix, the appeal is
allowed. Impugned order dated 22.12.2017 is hereby set
aside.
Accordingly, without expressing any opinion on the
merits of the case, it is directed that on furnishing personal
bond by the appellant in the sum of Rs.30,000/- (Rupees
Thirty Thousand Only), with one solvent surety in the like
amount to the satisfaction of the concerned Chief Judicial
Magistrate, he shall be released on bail, subject to the
following conditions that:-
(i)The appellant shall co-operate in the trial and
shall attend the trial Court during the trial:
(ii)The appellant shall not directly or indirectly
allure or make any inducement, thereat or
promise to prosecution witnesses so as to
dissuade him from disclosing such facts to the
Court.

or involve in any criminal activities;
22

(iv)In case, any default in attendance before the
Court or involvement in any other criminal
activities is found, the bail granted in this case

circumstances, co-accused Lalsingh has been granted
anticipatory bail by the coordinate Bench of this Court in
M.Cr.C. No.21672/2017 on 07/12/2017 and on the ground of
parity, the present petitioner is entitled to the same.

Though the learned Public Prosecutor has opposed the
application, however, he has fairly admitted that the case of
the present petitioner is identical to the case of co-accused
Lalsingh, who has been granted anticipatory bail by the co-
ordinate Bench of this Court.

According to the prosecution case, on 01/08/2017 a
TVS motorcycle without number plate has been intercepted
and during search, 28 kg poppy straw was recovered from the
conscious of one Sajjan.

Considering overall facts and totality of the
circumstances and on the ground of parity, the application is
allowed and direct that in the event of arrest of the petitioner
or his surrender before the Investigating Officer or before the
concerned Judicial Magistrate within 30 days from today in
connection with the aforesaid crime number, he shall be
released on bail upon his furnishing personal bond in the sum
30

of Rs.40,000/- with one surety in the like amount to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer. This order shall be
governed by the conditions No.1 to 3 of sub section (2) of
section 438 Cr.P.C.

CRA No.4326/2017
30/10/2017:-

Shri Vivek Singh, learned counsel for the appellant.

Shri R.Joshi, learned counsel for the respondent/State.

Heard on the question of admission.

Admit.

Also heard on IA No.5410/2018, which is second

application for suspension of sentence under Section 389 (1) of

Cr.P.C. His first application was dismissed as withdrawn vide

order dated 24.04.2018.

Appellant is convicted for the offence under Section

420/34, 467/34, 468/34 and 473/34 of the IPC and sentenced

to undergo 4-10-4-10 years RI respectively and fine of

Rs.1000/–2000/–1000/–2000/- respectively with default

stipulation for identifying Narmada Prasad as Nathuram.

Learned counsel for the appellant submit that during the

trial appellant was on bail. Final hearing of the appeal is likely

to take time. The appellant has a good case in appeal, hence

jail sentence be suspended during pendency of the appeal.

He further submits that complainant Sumer Singh in his

statement has stated nothing against the present appellant and
32

learned public prosecutor has declared him hostile and even

after cross-examination, nothing could be brought on record

against the present appellant and in cross-examination the

complainant has clearly denied the involvement of the present

appellant in the crime. He has stated that he himself brought

the appellant for his own identification.

Per contra, learned public prosecutor has drew my

attention towards para no. 24 of the impugned judgment, in

which learned Trial Court has held that the present appellant

has identified Narmada Prasad as Nathuram at the time of

execution of sale deed, therefore, the learned Trial Court was

of the opinion that the appellant is also involved in the crime

and convicted him.

I have considered the submissions of learned counsel for

the parties.

Considering the aforesaid, particularly the statement of

the complainant Sumer Singh before the learned Trial Court

and other facts and circumstances of the case, I am of the

opinion that the appellant has made out a case for suspension

of jail sentence. Thus, the application (IA No.5410/2018)
33

for suspension of sentence is allowed. It is directed that on

deposition of fine amount and also on furnishing personal bond

of Rs.30,000/- (Rupees Thirty Thousand Only) with one

solvent surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of the trial

Court for his appearance before this Court/Registry on

07.03.2019 and on all other subsequent dates, as may be

fixed by the Registry in this behalf, the execution of substantial

jail sentence imposed on the appellant shall remain

suspended, till final disposal of this appeal.

A copy of this order be sent to Court concerned for

compliance.

List for final hearing in due course.

Shri ———, learned counsel for the appellant.
Shri Peyush Jain, learned Public Prosecutor for the respondent/State.
Heard learned counsel for the parties on I.A. No.9536/2016, an
application under Section 389(1) Cr.P.C. for suspension of custodial
sentence.

The appellant has been convicted for offence under Section 363 IPC
and has been sentenced to 3 years RI with fine of Rs.500/-.

Learned counsel for the appellant submits that the learned trial Court
has recorded the conviction without properly appreciating the evidence on
record and that material omissions, contradictions and anomalies present in
the prosecution evidence have been overlooked. It is also submitted that the
appellant was on bail during trial and the liberty so granted was not
misused by him. It is further submitted that the appeal is likely to take
sufficiently long time in its final disposal and if the sentence is not
suspended then, it shall be rendered infructuous.

Though the prayer for suspension is opposed by learned Public
Prosecutor, however, looking to the aforesaid, without further commenting
on the merits of the case, it would be appropriate to suspend the custodial
sentence of the appellant.

Accordingly, I.A. No. 8357/16 is allowed and it is directed that on
execution of personal bond by the appellant in the sum of Rs.40,000/- with
a solvent surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of the learned trial
Court for his appearance before this Court, the execution of custodial
sentence imposed against him shall remain suspended, till the final disposal
of this appeal.

The appellant after being enlarged on bail, shall mark his presence
before the Registry of this Court on 21.12.2016 and on all such subsequent
dates, which are fixed in this regard by the Registry.

CC as per rules.
