Heard Sri Gaurav Sisodia, learned counsel for the applicant and the learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the record.

As per the prosecution case, the son of the informant went missing, thereafter, his body was found in a well; three persons were nominated in the F.I.R.; name of the applicant surfaced in the second statement of the informant; there is no evidence against the applicant apart from last seen; there is no eye witness account; applicant has been falsely implicated. It is lastly submitted that the applicant has no other reported criminal antecedent and he is languishing in jail since 03.07.0218, there is no likelihood of early disposal of trial and the applicant undertakes that if enlarged on bail, he will never misuse his liberty and will co-operate in the trial. The applicant has no motive to commit the present crime and he has been falsely implicated in this case. It is pointed out by the learned counsel for the applicant that similarly placed co-accused Jhajhan Lal, Kadey Ram and Satyaveer have been granted bail by a coordinate Bench of this Court in Criminal Misc. Bail Application Nos. 36360, 36617 & 37432 of 2018 vide orders dated 27.09.2018, 28.9.2018 & 05.10.2018, respectively. So, the applicant may also be released on bail.
Per contra, learned A.G.A. has vehemently opposed the prayer for grant of bail to the applicant but could not point out anything material to the contrary.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case as also the submissions advanced by learned counsel for the parties, without expressing any opinion on merits of the case, I am of the view that the applicant is entitled to be released on bail.
