IN THE SUPREME COURT
OF INDIA CRIMINALL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.886 OF 2009
(Arising out of SLP (Criminal) No.905 of 2009 Ravindranath Harishchandra Angre
...Appellant(s) Versus State of Maharashtra ...Respondent(s) ORDER Leave
This appeal is
directed against the order dated 11th July, 2008 passed by the High Court of
Judicature at Bombay in Criminal Application No.1535 of 2008.
By the impugned order
the High Court has rejected the application filed by the appellant for grant of
bail in the case arising out of F.I.R. No.I-445/2007 dated 19th October, 2007,
registered under Sections 323, 392, 384, 504 and 506 read with Section 34 of
Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and 25 of the Arms Act.
Having heard learned
counsel for the parties and bearing in mind the fact that the charge sheet has
already been filed on 9th April, 2008 and the appellant has been in custody
since 22nd February, 2008, in our opinion, it is a fit case where the benefit
of regular bail should be granted to the appellant.
appeal is allowed; the impugned order is set aside and it is directed that the
appellant shall be admitted to bail on his furnishing personal bond in the sum
of Rs.25,000/- (Rupees twenty five thousand only) with one surety in the like
amount to the satisfaction of the trial court. The appellant shall not,
directly or indirectly influence the witnesses and shall not leave India
without the previous approval of the trial court.
The appeal stands
disposed of in the above terms.
