1. STATE OF KERALA,REP.BY PUBLIC PROSECUTOR
For Petitioner :SRI.JACOB SEBASTIAN

The Hon'ble MR. Justice R.BASANT
O R D E R
R.BASANT, JCrl.M.C.No.606 of 2007
Dated this the 6th day of March, 2007
ORDERThe petitioner is the 1st accused in a prosecution under Section 498 A I.P.C. Cognizance has been taken by the learned Magistrate. According to the petitioner, he has not received any summons. But the learned Magistrate has now issued a warrant of arrest against the petitioner to secure his presence.
2. The petitioner is willing to surrender before the learned Magistrate. But the petitioner apprehends that his application for bail may not be considered by the learned Magistrate on merits, in accordance with law and expeditiously. The petitioner, in these circumstances, prays that directions under Section 482 Cr.P.C may be issued to the learned Magistrate to release him on bail on the date of surrender itself.
3. I find no reason to invoke the powers under Section 482 Cr.P.C. It is for the petitioner to appear before the learned Magistrate and explain to the learned Magistrate the circumstances under which he could not earlier appear before the learned Magistrate. I have no reason to assume that the learned Magistrate would not consider such application on merits, in accordance with law and expeditiously. Every court must do the same. No special or specific direction appears to be Crl.M.C.No.606 of 2007 2 necessary. Sufficient general directions have already been issued in Alice George v. The Deputy Superintendent of Police [2003(1) KLT 339].
4. This Crl.M.C is, in these circumstances, dismissed, but with the specific observation that if the petitioner appears before the learned Magistrate and applies for bail after giving sufficient prior notice to the Prosecutor in charge of the case, the learned Magistrate must proceed to pass appropriate orders on merits and expeditiously - on the date of surrender itself. H/O.
