V. RAMKUMAR, J.B. A. No.378 of 2007
DATED: JANUARY 18, 2007
O R D E RPetitioner who is the accused in C.C. No.16/2006 on the file of the J.F.C.M.-I, Palakkad, for an offence punishable under Secs.279 and 304-A I.P.C., seeks anticipatory bail.
2. Admittedly, consequent on the non-appearance of the petitioner before the trial court, his bail was cancelled and non-bailable warrants of arrest are pending against him. Anticipatory bail cannot be granted in a case like this so as to nullify the process issued by a court of competent jurisdiction. There is no reason why the petitioner should not surrender before the trial court 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 day on which it is filed after examining the contention of the petitioner regarding his previous non-appearance. With the above observation this application is disposed of.
