Sukhraj Singh … Petitioner


State of Punjab … Respondent


Present:- Mr. Vikas Garg, Advocate for the petitioner.

Ms. Rashmi Attri, Assistant Advocate General, Punjab ,

1. The petitioner has approached this Court seeking grant of anticipatory bail in

respect of a case registered vide FIR No.127 dated 20.6.2019 at Police

Station Phase-I, S.A.S. Nagar, Mohali, District Mohali under Sections 354,

Section379 and Section506 of Indian Penal Code, 1860.

2. The FIR was lodged at the instance of Shaina, wherein it has been alleged

that she is running a company by the name of ‘XOR Solution Company’ and

that Sukhraj Singh, who had earlier been working for the company, left the

company in April 2019 without informing her and joined another company

after stealing data from her company. It is further alleged that on 20.5.2019,

an amount of `5,600/- had been given to the petitioner and later on 24.5.2019

quarreled with her and stole an amount of `1,800/- from the drawer and also

threatened that he would ensure that the complainant’s company is shut


3. The learned counsel for the petitioner has submitted that the petitioner has

falsely been implicated in the present case mainly on account of the fact that

he had left the complainant’s company and had joined some other company.

It has further been submitted that infact even perusal of the FIR does not

disclose any offence under Section 354 IPC.

4. Opposing the petition, the learned State counsel has submitted that the

complainant in her supplementary statement recorded on the same day had

specifically stated that on 24.5.2019, when the petitioner had visited the

complainant’s company, he had also molested the complainant. It has,

however, been informed that the petitioner has since joined investigation.

5. Having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case and without

commenting anything on merits of the case, in my opinion, the present case is

not such, which would warrant custodial interrogation. The petition, as such,

is accepted and the interim directions issued by this Court vide order dated

12.7.2019 are hereby made absolute subject to the condition that the

petitioner shall join investigation as and when called upon to do so and

cooperate with the Investigating Officer and shall also abide by the

conditions as provided under Section 438 (2) Cr.P.C.
