A bail application was filed u/s 439 of Cr.P.C. seeking regular bail who was charged under Sections 376/354D/506 IPC and Section 4 POCSO Act at PS K.M.Pur.
I have heard the learned counsel for the parties and have examined the file. The petitioner is in custody since 14.01.2015. Charge-sheet has since been filed and the statement of the prosecutrix has been recorded on 26.10.2016.
Initially, the complainant did not lodge FIR for commission of rape. There is delay in lodging the FIR in question. Both the petitioner and the prosecutrix were acquainted with each other for the last about two years and had developed friendship. They used to have sexual talks. At no stage prior to the lodging of the FIR, any complaint was lodged against the petitioner.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, the petitioner is admitted to bail on furnishing personal bond in the sum of 40,000/- with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of the Trial Court.
The bail application stands disposed of. Order ‘dasti.
The original order is attached hereto: Bail under 376354D506 and Section 4 POCSO Act
