ORDER

The petitioner is seeking to be enlarged on bail in

connection with his arrest pursuant to the proceedings

in Crime No.117/2019 for the offences punishable

under Sections 323, Section504, Section506 and Section498-A of IPC read

with Sections 3 and Section4 of Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961.

2. The case of the prosecution is that the victim

is the complainant and on the basis of the complaint,

FIR is registered for the aforestated offences. The case

as is made out in the complaint is that the complainant

and the petitioner were married for about three years

prior to the date of complaint. It is further stated that

from the wedlock, they have a child Kum.Aadya. It is

further alleged that the petitioner used to harass the

complainant for money and jewels. It is alleged that on

29.05.2019 at about 11.00 p.m. accused No.1 is alleged

to have assaulted the complainant with a crowbar and
3

so also the other accused have joined in the said assault

and allegations have been made in the complaint

regarding the assault. On the basis of the said

information received, FIR came to be registered and

investigation is in progress.

3. The learned counsel for the petitioner states

that the fact that the complainant has included the

other accused into the complaint though other accused

has lived separately, which itself would indicate that it

is a false complaint. It is further stated that there were

differences in the matrimonial relationship and the

alleged incident is denied.

4. It is noted that the other accused have been

enlarged on anticipatory bail by order of the Court of 4th

Additional District and Sessions Judge, Hassan District,

dated 13.06.2019 in Crl.Misc.No.653/2019.

5. Taking note of the same and also noting that

the proof of offence is a matter for trial, custodial

interrogation of the petitioner as such may not be

required and the petitioner’s co-operation with

investigation could be secured by imposing suitable

conditions. Looking into the nature of injuries alleged

to have been caused, which are simple in nature, a case

is made out for enlarging the petitioner on bail in the

event of his arrest.

6. In the result, the bail petition filed by the

petitioner under Section 438 of Cr.P.C. is allowed and

the petitioner is enlarged on bail in the event of his

arrest in Crime No.117/2019 for the offences
