R.BASANT, JB.A.No.3691 of 2007
Dated this the 19th day of June, 2007
ORDERApplication for anticipatory bail. The 1st petitioner is the husband of the defacto complainant. Some of the co-accused have been granted anticipatory bail by the learned Sessions Judge. Petitioner's prayer was turned down. Marriage took place in 2003. There is strain in the relationship between the spouses. They are residing separately. Wife so residing separately has filed a private complaint. That was referred to the police under Section 156(3) Cr.P.C. Investigation is in progress. Petitioner apprehends imminent arrest for the offence under Section 498 A I.P.C.
2. The learned counsel for the petitioner prays, the learned Public Prosecutor does not seriously oppose the said prayer and I am satisfied that direction under Section 438 Cr.P.C can be issued in favour of the petitioner. In coming to this conclusion, I take note of the fact that no serious injuries are suffered by the victim and the contention is that fanciful and exaggerated allegations are raised because of the strain in the matrimonial relationship. Appropriate conditions can be imposed in the interests of a fair, efficient and expeditious investigation. B.A.No.3691 of 2007 2
3. In the result, this Bail Application is, allowed. The
following directions are issued under
Section 438 Cr.P.C.
i) The petitioner shall appear before the learned Magistrate having jurisdiction at 11 a.m on 26.06.2007.
