In this petition, prayer has been made to release the petitioner on regular bail in FIR No.125 dated 5.7.2004, under section 307, 376 IPC, registered at Police Station Chandi Mandir, District Panchkula.
As per the allegations, the petitioner committed rape of a minor girl.
At the time when this petition came up for preliminary hearing, it was brougt to the notice of the court that the whereabouts of the prosecutrix and her family, who belong to Uttar Pradesh, were not available and that so long as the prosecutrix would not be examined, there was no likelihood of the petitioner being released on bail.
With the intervention of the Court,the police was able to locate the prosecutrix (and her family), who has since been produced and Cirl. Misc. No.6240-M of 2006 -: 2 :-
examined as PW4. Learned State Counsel has shown me a certified copy of the deposition made by the victim.
Having regard to all the attending circumstances of this case, though no case to release the petitioner on bail is made out, however, this petition is disposed of with a direction to the learned trial court to expedite the proceedings and make an endeavour to conclude the trial as early as possible and preferably within four months.
