V.RAMKUMAR, J.B.A.No.7350 OF 2006
DATED THIS THE 15TH DAY OF DECEMBER, 2006
O R D E RPetitioner seeks anticipatory bail on the allegation that the Munambam Police are at his heels.
2. Learned Public Prosecutor opposed the application submitting that the petitioner is the sole accused in Crime No.303/06 of Munambam Police Station for offences punishable under sections 409 and 406 IPC in respect of a mini lorry. While the petitioner would assert that the complainant had repossessed the vehicle for carrying out certain mechanical work, the learned Public Prosecutor submitted that the vehicle is still with the petitioner.
3. Anticipatory bail cannot be granted in a case of this nature, especially when the custody of the vehicle in question is in dispute. There is no reason why the petitioner should not surrender before the Magistrate concerned and seek regular bail. Accordingly, if the petitioner surrenders before the Magistrate concerned and files an application for regular bail, within two BA.7350/06 Page numbers weeks from today, the same shall be considered and disposed of, preferably on the same date on which it is filed. With this direction, this petition is dismissed.
