The Hon'ble MR. Justice R.BASANT
O R D E R
R.BASANT, JB.A.No.3709 of 2007
Dated this the 28th day of June, 2007
ORDERApplication for anticipatory bail. The petitioner faces allegations, inter alia, under Section 326 r/w 149 I.P.C. That is the only non bailable offence alleged against the petitioner. The learned counsel for the petitioner submits that even if the entire allegations were accepted, no offence under Section 326 I.P.C will be revealed. If that be so, all other offences are bailable and the petitioner may be permitted to be released on bail on his arrest, submits the learned counsel for the petitioner.
2. The learned Public Prosecutor was requested to explain whether the victim has suffered any injury which would qualify to be a grievous hurt falling within the sweep of the definition of `grievous hurt' under Section 320 I.P.C. The learned Public Prosecutor submits that there is no specific material now available to indicate that the injury/hurt suffered would qualify to be a grievous hurt as defined under Section 320 I.P.C. Tenden has been cut. Except that, there is no better material presently available. The same cannot be reckoned as a grievous injury under any of the clauses of Section 320 I.P.C now. In the absence of better evidence to bring the same within clause fourthly or fifthly of Section 320 I.P.C, I am satisfied, that powers under Section 438 can be invoked in favour of the petitioner.
3. In the result, the Bail Application is, allowed. The
following directions are issued under
Section 438 Cr.P.C.
B.A.No.3709 of 2007 2
