MISC.APPLICATION No. 3192 of 2010



AYUB KEVAR - Applicant(s)


OF GUJARAT - Respondent(s)

Applicant(s) : 1, 
Respondent(s) :







: 11/05/2010 



1. This
application is preferred under Section 439 of the Code of Criminal
Procedure, 1973 seeking regular bail by the applicant, who came to be
arrested in connection with FIR registered as M. Case No. 66 of
2007 before learned Judicial Magistrate, First Class, Gandhidham for
the offence punishable under Sections 406, 420 and 506 (2) of the
Indian Penal Code.

2. Learned
advocate Mr. Saiyed submitted that the applicant is an innocent
person and he has been falsely implicated in the commission of the
alleged offence. He further submitted that the applicant is a victim
of circumstances and at best it can be stated that the applicant
failed in fulfilling the promise made by him, but the same has not
been done with any ulterior motive or pre-determination. He submitted
that though the applicant started a scheme, it went beyond his
control for various reasons. Learned advocate for the applicant,
however, submitted that the applicant is willing to repay the entire
amount to the complainant and he will deposit 1/3rd amount
due to the complainant before the trial Court and the remaining
amount will also be deposited before the trial Court within one month
from the date of release and since the accused is willing to deposit
the amount, his case may be considered sympathetically.

3. Learned
Addl. Public Prosecutor Mr. Devang Vyas, while opposing bail
application submitted that the applicant has cheated large number of
persons coming from the lower strata of the Society. He submitted
that considering the role attributed to the applicant and the manner
in which the offence is committed, discretionary relief may not be
exercised in favour of the applicant, and the application deserves to
be dismissed.

4. Heard
learned counsel appearing for the applicant and learned APP at length
and in great detail. I have also perused the averments made in the
application, submissions canvassed by learned advocate before me as
well as the FIR produced on record. I have also considered the
provisions of Sections 406, 420 and 506 (2) of the Indian Penal Code,
gravity of the offence and quantum of punishment which can be imposed
in the event of conviction of the applicant. Though the applicant
has collected huge amount from persons belonging to the lower strata
of the Society with the promise of providing accommodation and later
on did not do so, considering the fact that the applicant has
volunteered and shown willingness to deposit 1/3rd amount
immediately and the remaining amount within one month of his release
on bail, I am of the view that taking into consideration the
interest of the complainant in the peculiar facts and circumstances
of the case and without making it as a precedent, the applicant is
required to be enlarged on regular bail at this stage, without
entering into the merits of the case and without discussing the
evidence in detail.

5. The
parties do not press for further reasoned order.
