Respondent For Petitioner :SRI.T.P.SANTHOSH KUMAR For Respondent :PUBLIC PROSECUTOR The Hon'ble MR. Justice V.RAMKUMAR Dated :04/08/2010 O R D E R V. RAMKUMAR, J. ====================== B.A. No.3873 of 2010 ====================== Dated: 4.08.2010 ORDER
Petitioners, who are accused Nos.1 to 4 in Crime No.
616/2010 of Narakkal Police Station for offences punishable under
Sections 143,147,148,149,308,323,324,427 and 452 I.P.C. and
Section 27 of the Arms Act, seek anticipatory bail.
2. The learned Public Prosecutor opposed the application.
3. Anticipatory bail cannot be granted in a case of this
nature. But at the same time, I am inclined to permit the
petitioners to surrender before the Investigating Officer for the
purpose of interrogation and then to have their application for bail
considered by the Magistrate having jurisdiction. Accordingly, the
petitioners shall surrender before the investigating officer on
16.08.2010 or on 17.08.2010 for the purpose of interrogation and
recovery of incriminating material, if any. The petitioners shall
thereafter appear before the Magistrate who on being satisfied that
the petitioners have been interrogated by the Police, shall consider
and dispose of their application for regular bail preferably on the
same date on which it is filed.
This petition is disposed of as above.
