THIS BAIL APPLICATION HAVING COME UP FOR ADMISSION ON 25.02.2019,
THE COURT ON THE SAME DAY PASSED THE FOLLOWING:
Bail Appl..No. 754 of 2019 2

ORDER

This application is filed under Section 438 of the Code of

Criminal Procedure.

2. The applicants herein are father and son respectively and

they are the accused Nos.1 and 2 in Crime No.2402 of 2018 of the

Punaloor Police Station registered under Section 498A read with

Section 34 of the IPC.

3. According to the de facto complainant, who is the wife of the

1st applicant herein, their marriage was solemnized in the year 2011.

A child was born in the wedlock. According to the de facto

complainant, the applicants subjected her to cruelty and harassment

demanding dowry.

4. The learned counsel appearing for the applicants submitted

that in the year 2017 itself, the 1 st applicant had preferred a petition

under the Guardian and Wards Act seeking custody of his minor child.

Thereafter, in the year 2018, the wife of the 1 st applicant filed a

petition seeking realisation of money and gold, which is pending

before the Family Court, Kottarakkara. It is much later that alleging
Bail Appl..No. 754 of 2019 3

the acts of physical abuse, the complaint was lodged and the crime

was registered.

5. The learned Public Prosecutor, on instructions, submitted

that though serious allegations are levelled, no materials have been

produced along with the complaint to show that any physical injuries

were inflicted. In the facts and circumstances, it would be sufficient if

the applicants are ordered to co-operate with the investigation,

submits the learned Public Prosecutor.

6. I have considered the submissions advanced. After going

through the materials on record, I am of the considered view that the

custodial interrogation of the applicants is not necessary for an

effective investigation in the instant case.

In the result, this application will stand allowed. The applicants

shall appear before the investigating officer within ten days from today

and shall undergo interrogation. Thereafter, if they are proposed to be

arrested, they shall be released on bail on each of them executing a

bond for a sum of Rs.40,000/- (Rupees Forty thousand only) with two

solvent sureties each for the like sum. The above order shall be

subject to the following conditions:

Bail Appl..No. 754 of 2019 4

i) The applicants shall co-operate with the investigation and
shall appear before the Investigating Officer on every
Saturdays between 10 A.M and 1 P.M. for a period of two
months or till final report is filed whichever is earlier.

ii) They shall not directly or indirectly make any
inducement, threat or promise to any person acquainted
with the facts of the case so as to dissuade him/her from
disclosing such facts to the court or to any police officer.

iii) They shall not commit any similar offence while on bail.

In case of violation of any of the above conditions, the

jurisdictional Court shall be empowered to consider the application for

cancellation, if any, and pass appropriate orders in accordance with

the law.
