Heard learned counsel for the applicant and learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the record.
It appears that none of the independent witnesses have supported the allegation made in the FIR. The medical report also does not supports the same. The applicant is in jail since 21.06.2019 and in paragraph 15 of the affidavit in support of the bail application it has been averred that the applicant has no criminal history to his credit.
Learned A.G.A. opposed the prayer for bail but could not dispute the aforesaid facts as argued by learned counsel for the applicant.
After considering the rival submissions noted hereinabove, larger mandate of SectionArticle 21 of the Constitution of India and the material brought on record and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case and considering the facts and circumstances of the case, I am of the opinion that the applicant is entitled to be released on bail.
