BAIL APPLICATION NO. 221 OF 2007
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
DATED THIS THE 17th DAY OF JANUARY, 2007
O R D E RPetitioners who are accused Nos.3, 6 and 9 in S.T.No.548/05 on the file of J.F.C.M.-I, Kozhikode for offences punishable under sections 143, 147 and 181 read with section 149 IPC and section 19 of the Kerala Police Act, seek anticipatory bail.
2. Admittedly, consequent on the non-appearance of the petitioners before the J.F.C.M.-I, Kozhikode, non-bailable warrants of arrest are pending against the petitioners.
3. Anticipatory bail cannot be granted to nullify the process issued by a court of competent jurisdiction. There is no reason why the petitioner should not surrender before the Magistrate and seek regular bail. Accordingly, if the petitioner surrenders before the Magistrate and files an application for regular bail, within two weeks from today, the same shall be considered and disposed of, preferably on the same date on which it is filed, despite the non-bailable warrants of arrest pending against them. With this direction, this petition is disposed of.
