R. BASANT, J.CRL.M.C.NO. 3878 OF 2006
Dated this the 28th day of November, 2006
ORDERThe petitioner, who has been granted anticipatory bail subject to conditions by another Bench of this Court as per the order dated 17/11/2006, prays that the conditions imposed on the petitioner can now be deleted. He is aggrieved by the condition that he must appear before the Investigating Officer between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on all Wednesdays. The petitioner has been granted time for one month to appear before the learned Magistrate and seek regular bail.
2. The petitioner has not appeared before the learned Magistrate so far. In the meantime, the learned Public Prosecutor submits that the investigation is complete and the final report has already been filed.
3. It is for the petitioner to appear before the learned Magistrate and seek regular bail in accordance with the directions in the order granting anticipatory bail. I do not find any justification in the prayer for modification of the condition CRL.M.C.NO. 3878 OF 2006 -: 2 :- now. The petitioner must certainly appear before the learned Magistrate at an early date and seek regular bail.
4. However, the learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the condition imposed on the petitioner that he must appear before the Investigating Officer on all Wednesday may be kept in abeyance in so far as this Wednesday i.e., 29/11/2006 is concerned as his personal presence is unavoidably required at Bangalore in connection with his work. The learned Public Prosecutor does not raise any serious objection against that prayer.
5. I am, in these circumstances, satisfied that the said condition that the petitioner must appear before the Investigating Officer on 29/11/2006 can be dispensed with. The petitioner can certainly surrender before the learned Magistrate on the next Wednesday and seek regular bail. He can certainly request the learned Magistrate not to impose such a condition when regular bail is granted to him.
6. This Crl.M.C. is allowed in part to the extent indicated above. Sd/-
