IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE FOR RAJASTHAN AT
Mst Abdia Vs. State of Rajasthan
S.B.CR. MISC. BAIL APPLICATION NO.5248/2007
DATE OF ORDER :: November 16, 2007
HON'BLE MR.JUSTICE H.R.PANWAR
Mr.Ramesh Purohit, for the petitioner.
Mr.Ashok Upadhyaya, P.P. for the State.
BY THE COURT:
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner and the Public
Prosecutor for the State. Perused the order impugned and the police investigation diary.
It is contended by learned counsel for the petitioner that the deceased was suffering from second stage of Tuberculosis.
She was got treated by petitioner and her other family members, however, she died because of serious ailment of second stage of
Tuberculosis. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that after investigation, the police did not find case against the petitioner and co-accused for the offence under section 498-A and 304-B I.P.C. and filed the negative final report. However, subsequently, the police again investigated the matter and found the case against petitioner and co-accused Imran under section 304-B I.P.C.
It is further contended by learned counsel for the petitioner that from the post mortem report, no definite cause of death has been opined by Medical Board comprising of three Doctors. It is further contended that even in FSL Report, there is no positive sign of administering the poisonous substance to the deceased.
Learned Public Prosecutor submits that initially the dead body was examined by the Medical Board comprising of three
Doctors, who conducted the post mortem, which, they did not find exact cause of death. However, the viscera was sent for FSL and the FSL Report dt.21.9.2006 also did not indicate the positive test of administering metalic poisons, ethyl and methyl alcohol cyanide, alkaloids, barbiturates, tranquillizers and insecticides. Thus, there is no positive test of administering the poisonous substance in view of the FSL Report.
I have gone through the statements of the Doctors, who were the Members of Medical Board. Almost all the Doctors were of the opinion that cause of death is not by pressing the mouth or strangulation . The possibility cannot be ruled out that deceased died because she was suffering from second stage of
Tuberculosis and may be by heavy doze of medicine. At any rate, the death of deceased is neither homicidal nor suicidal.
There appears to be no other material connecting the petitioner with the commission of the offence under section 304-B I.P.C.
There had been statements of various Doctors and latest report given by the Medical Board comprising three Doctors on 27.8.2007, which is as under:
" , pulmonary embolism, pulmonary hypertension Heart concleution defuse . + - +
- 2 3 "
Thus, the Doctors concurrently opined that possibility cannot be ruled out that the deceased died because she was suffering from pulmonary embolism, pulmonary hypertension.
Be that as it may, without commenting on the merit of the case, having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case and looking to the material available on the police investigation diary, I consider it just and proper to grant anticipatory bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, the bail application filed by petitioner under section 438 Cr.P.C. is allowed and it is directed that in the event of arrest of petitioner Mst Abida w/o Farook in FIR No. 108/2006, Police Station, Sujangarh, Distt. Churu, she shall be released on bail for a period till the police concludes the investigation and files the challan provided she furnishes a personal bond in the sum of Rs.10,000/- along with one surety of like amount to the satisfaction of Investigating Officer to surrender and appear before the trial court on the date of filing of the challan after conclusion of the investigation on the following conditions:-
