O R D E R

The petitioner is the accused in a prosecution under Section 138 of the N.I. Act. Cognizance has been taken. Consequent to the non-appearance of the petitioner, coercive processes have been issued against the petitioner. Steps are being taken by the court to secure the presence of the petitioner.

2. The petitioner, through his counsel, submits that the petitioner is absolutely innocent. According to the petitioner he had no clue of the pendency of the proceedings before the learned Magistrate. The petitioner is willing to appear before the learned Magistrate through counsel and co-operate for the early disposal of the case. To show his bonafides he is willing to deposit the entire cheque amount and some amount to provide for the interest and cost. This offer is made to show the bonafides of the petitioner. He may be permitted to appear through counsel. The mere fact that warrant of arrest has been issued may not stand in the way of the learned Magistrate considering and accepting the request of the petitioner for exemption from personal appearance, submits the counsel. I find the request to be absolutely justified. Crl.M.C.No. 2362 of 2007 2

3. This Crl.M.C. is allowed. It is directed that if the petitioner deposits an amount of Rs.11,000/- before the learned Magistrate and applies through counsel to exempt him from personal appearance and to permit him to appear through counsel, the learned Magistrate shall accept the said request and exempt the petitioner from personal appearance. The fact that a warrant of arrest and coercive processes have been issued against the petitioner shall not stand in the way of the learned Magistrate considering and accepting the said request for exemption. It is now trite that the plea of the accused can be recorded and the proceedings can be continued even without his personal appearance, when he is exempted from appearance. The learned Magistrate shall proceed with the case. The learned counsel for the petitioner further submits that if the complainant is prepared to withdraw the case, the petitioner has no objection against the release of the entire amount of Rs.11,000/- to the complainant. That offer and submission is also specifically taken note of and recorded so that the court below can act on the same. (R. BASANT) Judge Crl.M.C.No. 2362 of 2007 3 tm
