Crl. Misc. No.67677-M of 2005
Date of decision: April 21, 2006.
State of Punjab
Present: Shri Vikrant Sharma, Advocate for the petitioner.
Shri B.S. Sewak, Dy. Advocate General, Punjab.
Surya Kant, J. (Oral)
The prayer in this petition is to release the petitioner on regular bail in FIR No.322 dated 22.11.2004, under section 15/61/85 of the NDPS Act, registered at Police Station Sadar Muktsar.
Bail has been sought by the petitioner primarily on the ground that his health condition is precarious and he requires regular check up/treatment including 'indoor treatment' from the PGIMS, Chandigarh.
On March 31, 2006, the SSP, Muktsar was directed to get a Medical Board constituted from the Civil Surgeon, Muktsar for the petitioner's examination and thereafter to submit the report along with his affidavit.
In deference to the aforementioned directions, the SSP, Muktsar has filed an affidavit dated April 20, 2006, para 2 of which reads as follows:-
Crl. Misc. No.67677-M of 2005 - 2 -
"2. That according to opinion/report of medical Board, the Board of Doctors has opined that "In our combined opinion general conditions of the patient is stable and satisfactory.
However, he needs regular medical treatment as prescribed by P.G.I. Chandigarh." The opinion of the Board of Doctors in original is attached as Annexure R-I." Along with the affidavit, the opinion given by the Medical Board has also been appended, which is taken on record.
Since the petitioner has been provided medical treatment from the PGIMS, Chandigarh and presently his condition is stable and satisfactory, no case for grant of bail at this stage, is made out. However, in order to ensure that the petitioner's health condition does not deteriorate for want of proper treatment, this petition is disposed of with the following directions:-
(i)SSP, Muktsar and Superintendent, Sub-Jail, Muktsar shall ensure that an expert Medical Officer examines the petitioner periodically;
(ii) the petitioner shall be provided all the medical facilities including medicines, if any, may be as prescribed by the PGIMS, Chandigarh;
(iii) if so required, the petitioner shall also be provided indoor treatment from the PGIMS, Chandigarh.
