It is submitted by learned counsel for the applicant that co- accused namely Mangal Singh has already been granted bail by this Court vide order dated 9.1.2019 in Criminal Misc. Bail Application No. 1127 of 2019, since the role of the applicant is not distinguishable with the role of co- accused, therefore, the applicant is also entitled for bail. The applicant is innocent and has been falsely implicated in the present case. There is no intention of knowledge to kill the deceased. Applicant was not named in the F.I.R. The name of the applicant was disclosed by the complainant.
F.I.R. was lodged on the basis of suspicion only. After thought, the false story was developed with legal consultation due to previous enmity. Applicant has no concern with said crime. Incident took place at night, no body has seen the incident. There is no independent witness. Offence under Section 304 IPC is not made out against the applicant. He is languishing in jail since 21.10.2018 (more than three months) having no criminal history and in case he is released on bail, he will not misuse the liberty of bail and will cooperate in trial.
Learned A.G.A. opposed the prayer for bail but could not dispute the aforesaid fact as argued by learned counsel for the applicant and admitted that applicant has no criminal history.
Considering the submission of learned counsel for the parties, facts of the case, nature of allegation and period of custody, gravity of offence, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, the Court is of the opinion that it is a fit case for bail. Hence, the bail application is hereby allowed.
