Case :- APPLICATION U/S 482 No. - 2516 of 2010

Petitioner :- Anil Kumar Patel
Respondent :- State Of U.P. And Another
Petitioner Counsel :- A.K. Shrivastava
Respondent Counsel :- Govt. Advocate

Hon'ble Ravindra Singh,J.

Heard learned counsel for the applicant and learned A.G.A. 
This application has been filed with a prayer to dispose of the bail 
application of the applicant on the same day in case crime No. 16 of 
2010  under  sections  419,  420,  467,  468  IPC,  P.S.  Lanka,  District 
Varanasi.

However, considering the facts and circumstances of the case, it is 
directed that in case the applicant moves application and applies for 
bail the same shall be heard and disposed of in view of Smt. Amrawati 
and another Vs. State of U.P. 2005 Cr.L.J. 755.
The Full Bench of this court has held in the aforementioned case:

1. Even if a cognizable offence is disclosed in the FIR or complaint 
the arrest of the accused is not a must, rather the police officer 
should   be   guided   by  the   the   decision   of   the   Supreme   Court   in 
Joginder   Kumar   Vs.   State   of   U.P.   1994   Cr.L.J.   1981,   before 
deciding whether to make an arrest or not.

2. The High Court should ordinarily not direct any Subordinate Court 
to   decide   the   bail   application   the   same   day,   as   that   would   be 
interfering with the judicial discretion of the court hearing the bail 
application. However, as stated above, when the bail application is 
under section 437 Cr.P.C. ordinarily the Magistrate should himself 
decide the bail application the same day, and if he decides in a 
rare and exceptional case not to decide it on the same day, he 
must   record   his   reasons   in   writing.   As   regards   the   application 
under   section   439   Cr.P.C.   it   is   in   the   discretion   of   the   learned 
Sessions Judge, considering the facts and circumstances whether 
to decide the bail application the same day or not, and it is also in 
his discretion to grant interim bail the same day subject to the final 
decision on the bail application later. 

The   same   has   been   approved   by   the   Hon’ble   Apex   Court   in  Lal 
Kamlendra Pratap Singh Versus State of U.P. on 23.3.2009 in Criminal 
Appeal No. 538 of 2009.

With this direction, this application is finally disposed of.
