Bhagwat Joshi @ Shankar Lal Joshi Vs State of Chhattisgarh (Chhattisgarh High Court)

LinkedIn


Court :
Chhattisgarh High Court

Brief :
“The delicate light of the law favours release unless countered by the negative criterianecessitating that course. The correctiveinstinct of the law plays upon release orders by strapping on to them protective and curative conditions. Heavy bail from poor men is obviously wrong. Poverty is society's malady and sympathy, not sternness, is the judicial response.”

“The delicate light of the law favours release unless countered by the negative criterianecessitating that course. The correctiveinstinct of the law plays upon release orders by strapping on to them protective and curative conditions. Heavy bail from poor men is obviously wrong. Poverty is society's malady and sympathy, not sternness, is the judicial response.”

1. The abovestated statement of law rendered by V.R. Krishna Iyer, J. speaking for the Supreme Court in thematter of Babu Singh & others v. The State of U.P.1 (Para23) aptly applies to the facts of the present case as the trial Magistrate while admitting the accused to be privilege of bail imposed a stringent condition of furnishing bank guarantee of 2 lakhs, which is subjectmatter of this petition.

2. The petitioner is an accused standing trial for offence under Section 420/34 of the IPC. He made an application under Section 437 of the CrPC for grant of bail and eventually that application was granted by learned Magistrate with a condition of furnishing bank guarantee of ₹ 2,00,000/or cash. On revision being preferred by the petitioner, learned First Additional Sessions Judge, Balod partly allowed the revision and reduced the amount of bank guarantee from ₹ 2,00,000 to ₹ 1,00,000 and also directed for furnishing bail bond of ₹ 10,000/in addition to bank guarantee.
