HON'BLE MR.JUSTICE MOHAMMAD RAFIQ
Shri Mohar Pal Meena for the petitioner.
Shri Harshvardhan Nandvana P.P. for the State.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner, learned Public Prosecutor for the State and perused the relevant documents placed before me.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has argued that though initially the accused-petitioner was arrested on 25/8/2007 in connection with investigation of one first information report but during the course of investigation, two more first information reports were registered. He was thus shown to have been arrested by production warrant in all these first information reports namely; FIR
Nos.125/2007, 126/2007 and 127/2007 from time to time. The allegation against the petitioner is committing the offence u/S.136 of the Indian
Electricity Act which is punishable by sentence of three years and triable by the Court of the
Magistrate, Ist Class.
SB Cr.M.Bail Appl.No.6894/07.
The accused-petitioner was arrested on 25/8/2007 and challan has been filed on 31/8/2007.
He is no more needed for the purpose of investigation. Except the above referred FIRs registered against the petitioner with P.S. Tehala,
District Alwar, no other criminal case is pending against him. It is argued that petitioner undertakes to appear before the trial court on each and every date of hearing during the pendency of trial, completion of which is likely to take long hence, the petitioner may be enlarged on bail during trial.
Learned Public Prosecutor has opposed the bail application and argued that in view of the seriousness of offence, the petitioner is not entitled for indulgence of grant of bail pending trial.
Without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case but taking into consideration the aforesaid arguments and the fact that petitioner is in jail since 25/8/2007, I deem it appropriate to enlarge him on bail.
In the result, this bail application u/S.439
Cr.P.C. is allowed and it is directed that petitioner Moti Lal S/o Ram Kunwar Meena shall be
SB Cr.M.Bail Appl.No.6894/07. released on bail in F.I.R. No.125/2007 P.S. Tehala,
District Alwar for offence under Section 136 of the
Indian Electricity Act subject to his furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs.30,000/- together with two sureties in the sum of Rs.15,000/- each to the satisfaction of the trial Court for his appearance before that court on all dates of hearing until conclusion of the trial.
In case, the accused-petitioner is found indulging again in the offence of theft at any point of time in future, the prosecution shall be at liberty to apply for cancellation of his bail on this ground alone.
