Petitioner is accused in connection with Bistupur P.S. Case No.128 of 2011
corresponding to G.R. Case No.1602 of 2011 registered under Section 272 of the
Indian Penal Code and Section 47(A) of the Excise Act which is pending in the Court
of learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jamshedpur.
It reveals that various brand of foreign liquor, as per seizure list, has been
recovered from the hotel of present petitioner. Since the petitioner was neither
licensee nor produced any valid document against possession of said liquor, this case
has been instituted.
It is submitted that the petitioner was away from the hotel and he is not
responsible for any such recovery.
Learned counsel for the State opposed the prayer for bail.
Considering nature of the offence, I am not inclined to grant the petitioner,
above named, anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, this anticipatory bail application stands rejected. Petitioner is
directed to surrender in the court below within a month for seeking regular bail
which will be disposed of on the day of surrender itself and will be considered by the
Court below without being prejudiced with this order.
