HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE FOR RAJASTHAN AT
S.B. Criminal Misc. Bail No. 4319 / 2017
Mangi Lal S/o Nathuram, B/c Jat R/o Chak 21 GG Burjali P.S.
Chunawat District Sri Ganganagar At Present Residing At
Parmasara District Hanumangarh (Rajasthan)
(Presently Lodged in Central Jail Bikaner)
State of Rajasthan.
For Petitioner(s) : Mr. S.K. Verma
For Respondent(s) : Mr. Ashok Upadhyay, P.P., for the State
HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE P.K. LOHRA
The instant bail application under Section 439 Cr.P.C., at the
behest of petitioner, is arising out of FIR No.621/2015 Police
Station Nokha, District Bikaner.
In the FIR, petitioner is charged for offences punishable
under Sections 498A, 304B and alternatively under Section
302 IPC. After investigation, Police has submitted charge-sheet
for the aforesaid offences and presently sessions trial in Case
No.23/2017 is under progress before Additional Sessions Judge
(Women Atrocities Cases), Bikaner.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has contended that though
the allegations against petitioner are very serious but during trial
most of the witnesses including first informant and father of
deceased have turned hostile. Learned counsel has further
(2 of 2)
submitted that P.W.2 Jyani, mother of the deceased, has also
retracted from her earlier version so as to absolve the petitioner.
Learned counsel relying on the evidence, which has so far come
to the fore during trial, has urged that petitioner may be enlarged
Learned Public Prosecutor has vehemently opposed the bail
application of petitioner.
Having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case,
without expressing any opinion on merits of the case, I deem it
just and appropriate to grant indulgence to the petitioner by
enlarging him on bail.
Accordingly, the bail application under Section 439 Cr.P.C. is
allowed and it is ordered that accused-petitioner, Mangi Lal S/o
Nathuram, arrested in connection with F.I.R. No.621/2015, Police
Station Nokha, District Bikaner, may be released on bail; provided
he furnishes a personal bond of Rs.50,000/- with two sureties of
like amount to the satisfaction of learned trial Court with the
stipulation to appear before that Court on all dates of hearing and
as and when called upon to do so.
