presented by the applicant.

3. The first informant stated in the FIR that the
marriage of his sister had taken place before 12
years and there were three children out of the
wed-lock. It was stated that whenever she used to
come to parental house, she had complained about
suspicious nature of her in-laws. It was alleged
that in-laws were quarreling with her. On fateful
day, she died having taken poison. The complainant
stated that he was informed about the incident and he
rushed to Dharpul village, where the victim was
admitted in the hospital.

4. Heard learned advocate Mr. Pankaj Chaudhary for
the applicant and learned APP for the respondent

5. In the FIR itself, a statement has been coming
forth from the complainant that he was told by the
victim that she had been suffering from fever and she
had asked her nephew to bring medicine for fever.
However, by mistake she consumed other medicines,
which was poison. Having noticed the said aspect
emerging from the allegations in the FIR and having
further perused the investigational papers including
dying declaration in the said context and
furtherance, a clear case is made out for grant of
anticipatory bail.

6. The court also took note of the principles laid

R/CR.MA/6793/2017 ORDER

down by the Apex Court in Siddharam Satllingappa
Mhetre vs. State of Maharashtra [AIR 2011 SC 312],
and in Jai Prakash Singh vs. State of Bihar [AIR 2012
SC 1676] and other decisions in which parameters to
be considered by the court for grant of anticipatory
bail have been set out, and applied those parameters
to the facts of the case. Since the court was
inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the applicant-
accused, even as learned APP made submissions to
object the grant of bail, he stated that he would not
invite detailed reasons. Learned advocate for the
applicant also did not press for reasons.

6.1 In the facts and circumstances obtained and for
the reasons recorded above, personal liberty of the
applicant-accused deserves to be accorded primacy
over his forced arrest. The investigational needs
could be balanced by imposing appropriate conditions
to be observed by the applicant-accused including the
condition of keeping the right of the police open to
ask for remand of the applicant-accused, if required.

7. As a result of above facts and aspects, present
application is allowed and it is directed that in the
event of the applicant’s arrest in connection with
the F.I.R. bearing registration No. I-6 of 2017
registered with Kakoshi Police Station, Patan, on
08.02.2017, he shall be released forthwith on
condition of his execution a personal bond of
Rs.25,000/- (Rupees Twenty Five Thousand Only).
