THE HIGH COURT OF MADHYA PRADESH
(Rahul Yadav Vs State of M.P.)
Gwalior Dt. 8/5/18
Shri Pradeep Katare, learned counsel for the applicant.
Shri Dilip Singh Tomar, learned Public Prosecutor for the
Heard learned counsel for the parties.
This is second bail application under Section 439 of Cr.P.C.
filed on behalf of the applicant who is in custody since 2/3/2018 in
connection with Crime No. 94/2018, registered at Police Station
Kampoo, District Gwalior for the offence under Sections 354 IPC and
Sec. 7/8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Ofences Act. The
earlier application of the applicant was dismissed as withdrawn with
liberty to file afresh after investigation is complete.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the chargesheet
has been filed and therefore he prays for bail.
Learned Public Prosecutor for the State opposes the application.
After hearing aforesaid arguments and looking to the facts that
investigation is over by filing charge-sheet and that prolonged pre-trial
detention being an anathema to the concept of liberty, this Court is
inclined to extend the benefit of bail to the applicant.
Accordingly, without expressing any opinion on merits of the
case, this application is allowed and it is directed that the applicant be
released on bail on furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs.
50,000/- (Rs. Fifty Thousand only) with two solvent sureties in the
like amount to the satisfaction of the concerned trial Court.
Certified copy as per rules.
