Criminal Misc. Bail Application No. 5468 of 2005
Shamshuddin Vs. State of U.P.
Hon'ble Ravindra Singh,J.
Heard Sri Brijendra Kumar Jai Prakash Prasad learned counsel for the applicant and the learned A.G.A.
This application has been filed by the applicant Shamshuddin with the prayer that he may be released on bail in case crime No. 442 of 2004 under Section18/20 of N.D.P.S.Act, P.S. Delhi Gate, district Aligarh.
From the perusal of the record it appears that in the present case an F.I.R. was lodged by the Sub Inspector Sita Ram Dheemar on 28.11.2004. The allegation against the applicant is that from his possession 2 k.g. 800 gram charas was recovered .
It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicant that there is no compliance of Section 50 of the N.D.P.S. Act and there is no public witnesses to support the prosecution story. According to prosecution version itself recovered articles were in two packets and from both the packets sample was not taken.
It is opposed by the learned A.G.A. by submitting that the arresting officer has apprised the applicant about his right as provided under Section 50 of the N.D.P.S. Act and he placed the offer before him to give search before any Magistrate or Gazetted Officer, but the applicant stated that search may be taken by the arresting officer. It is submitted that the arresting officer has made an effort to collect the public witness, but nobody was available. It is further submitted that huge recovery of charas was made from the possession of the applicant, so there was no chance of plantation of the same.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the submissions made by the learned counsel for the applicant and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, the applicant is not entitled for bail at this stage.
Accordingly this bail application is rejected
