As there is strike of lawyers, no one has appeared on behalf of the applicant to argue the bail application. However, Ram Pal Yadav, husband of the applicant, who is also pairokar of the affidavit accompanying the bail application has appeared in person.
This is a bail application on behalf of the applicant Sharda Devi in connection with Case Crime No.103 of 2016, in Case No.2216 of 2018, under Section 406 I.P.C., P.S. Kotwali Hata, District Kushinagar.
Heard Sri Ram Pal Yadav, on behalf of the applicant in person and learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the record.
It has been argued that the applicant is quite innocent and has been falsely implicated in the present case with the ulterior motive. It has been alleged in the first information report that the applicant along with other co-accused has embezzled the public money to the tune of Rs.1,42,425/-. He submitted that all the offences are triable by the court of Magistrate. He submitted that he is ready to deposit Rs.30,000/- within two months from the date of her release from the jail. He submitted that the applicant is languishing in jail since 09.08.2019 and in case, she is released on bail she will not misuse the liberty of bail and will cooperate in the trial.
Learned A.G.A. has opposed the bail plea.
Considering the overall facts and circumstances, the nature of allegations, the gravity of offence, the severity of the punishment, the evidence appearing against the accused, but without expressing any opinion on merits, this Court finds it to be a fit case for bail.
Accordingly, the bail application stands allowed.

i) The applicant shall not tamper with the prosecution evidence.
