THIS CRIMINAL PETITION COMING ON FOR ORDERS, THIS DAY

High Court Government Pleader for respondent.

offences punishable under Sections 498A IPC and Sections 3 and

5. The Court of XLV Additional City Civil and Sessions

Judge, Bengaluru City, by its order dated 29.04.2021 was

pleased to allow the application filed by the petitioners under
3

Section 438 of Cr.P.C. imposing conditions. Condition Nos.2 and

“2. The petitioners shall surrender before the
concerned Police within 30 days from the date of this
order without fail.

7. They shall not leave the jurisdiction of this

concerned Court.”

6. The learned counsel for petitioners has submitted

that in view of the lockdown on account of the pandemic, the

petitioners who are residents of Udupi could not travel in time to

Bengaluru so as to comply the above conditions and therefore

they filed an application for relaxation of those conditions. The

learned Sessions Judge by an order dated 25.05.2021 though

allowed the said application, however, the result is that in view

of the condition that they shall not leave the residential address,

the petitioners who are permanent residents of Udupi are not

able to travel to Bengaluru and appear before the Investigation

Officer.

7. The learned Sessions Judge has directed the

petitioners to surrender before the concerned police within the

time stipulated in the order and also directed that they shall not

leave the jurisdiction of the said Court. The case is registered in

Bengaluru, therefore obviously petitioners could not leave the

jurisdiction of Udupi so as to surrender before the concerned

Investigation Officer. In the above circumstances, it is just and

necessary to pass necessary orders. Accordingly, the following

ORDER

The criminal petition is allowed.

Condition Nos.2 and 7 passed in Criminal Misc.
