In the present case, the then President of the Bar

had got issued two books from the Beawar Bar Association Library,

Beawar City. For non-return of the two books, impugned F.I.R. has been

registered for offence punishable under Section 406 I.P.C.

(2 of 2) [CRLMP-996/2014]

The learned counsel appearing for the petitioner has

submitted that she has already deposited Rs.3000/- under protest.

Be that as it may, since the petitioner has deposited the

amount and withdrawal of the books from the library by the Member

and non-return thereof will not prove intention of the petitioner-

member to misappropriate the books as the same may have been lost

by the petitioner because of the bonafide reasons, hence, no offence

under Section 406 I.P.C. is made out.

Consequently, the present petition is accepted. The

impugned F.I.R. is quashed primary for the reason that the petitioner

has already deposited Rs.3000/- in the Library towards books not

returned and the said amount shall be retained by the Library.
