1. Bail application has been filed on behalf of petitioner namely Sk. Majid @ Bobby
who is in custody in connection with Mahila P.S. Case No. 05 of 2017, corresponding to
G.R.Case no. 501 of 2017 for the offence registered U/Ss. 354/354D/504/506 of the
I.P.C. and Section 12 of POCSO Act.
2. Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned counsel for the State.
3. Learned counsel for the petitioner has submitted that there was love affair
between the informant and the petitioner which was not accepted by the parents of
informant and as such this false case has been instituted agaisnt the petitioner. All the
sections are bailable in nature except Section 354 IPC. Thereis no criminal antecedent
against the petitioner hence, he may be released on bail.
4. Learned A.P.P. has opposed the prayer for bail and submitted that apart from the
facts of harassment there is also an allegation in the FIR that petitioner had given a
threat of throwing acid to the informant hence, petitioner does not deserve to be
enlarged on bail.
5. Having heard counsel for both sides and looking to the facts and circumstances
of the case, I am inclined to enlarge the above named petitioner on bail, on furnishing
bail bond of Rs. 20,000/(Twenty Thousand only) with two sureties of the like amount
each to the satisfaction of learned Additional Sessions Judge 1 st JSR, Jamshedpur in
connection with Mahila P.S. case no. 5 of 2017, corresponding to G.R.Case no. 501 of
2017, with condition that the petitioner will not approach the informant, or be found to
be in disturbing proximity of the informant, and also he will not intimidate the
informant or her family members, failing which, his bail bond shall be cancelled
immediately. Moreover, the parents of the petitioner are also directed to keep their child
