LISA GILL, J.
The petitioner prays for bail pending trial in FIR No.1391 dated
20.11.2017 under Sections 323/376/377/406/511/498A/506 IPC, registered at
Police Station City Ballabgarh, District Faridabad.
The petitioner is the father-in-law of the complainant. It is submitted
that absolutely false, baseless and incorrect allegations have been levelled against
him due to matrimonial discord between the complainant and her husband i.e.,
the petitioner’s son. The complainant, it is submitted, was never subjected to any
kind of ill-treatment and harassment. No offence punishable under Section 376
read with Section 511 IPC is made out against the petitioner. The complainant

has in fact made an attempt to involve all the family members in this case. The
complainant has levelled similar allegations against her brother-in-law i.e., the
other son of the petitioner. Allegations of attempt of rape by the petitioner are
absolutely false and incorrect. The petitioner, it is submitted, is not involved in
any other criminal case and he undertakes not to misuse the concession of bail, if
afforded to him. It is thus prayed that this petition be allowed.
Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Fateh Singh,
verifies that the final report under Section 173 Cr.P.C. has since been presented.
The petitioner is not reported to be involved in any other criminal case. The other
co-accused have been afforded the concession of bail pending trial. Trial in this
case is not likely to conclude in the near future.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the petitioner is
likely to abscond or that he is likely to dissuade the witnesses from deposing true
facts before the Court, if released on bail.
Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the case but without
commenting upon or expressing any opinion on the merits thereof, this petition is
allowed. The petitioner be released on bail pending trial subject to his furnishing
requisite bail bonds and surety to the satisfaction of the learned Trial Court.
It is clarified that none of the observations made hereinabove shall
be construed to be a reflection on the merits of the case. The same are solely
confined for the purpose of decision of the present petition.
