Allahabad High Court gives relief to person accused of cheating people

The Allahabad High Court has given relief to the person who cheated people in the name of getting a job. The Court has ordered to release him on bail.

A Single Bench of Justice Piyush Agrawal passed this order while hearing a Criminal Misc Bail Application filed by Ravi.

The bail application has been filed by the applicant seeking bail in Case under Sections 420, 406, 467, 468, 471 IPC, Police Station- Narsena , District – Bulandshahar.

Counsel for the applicant submitted that the applicant is innocent and has been falsely implicated in the crime.

It is submitted that on refusal of illegal demand of Gajendra Kumar by the brother of the applicant, he in collusion with the informant lodged the FIR in order to create pressure upon the brother of the applicant for withdrawing the case lodged by him. There was inordinate delay in lodging the FIR, which had not been explained; there was no independent public witness to prove the alleged transaction of money; on perusal of the FIR itself, it shows that no money has been transferred in the account of the applicant and he was not the beneficiary of the alleged money. The applicant is old person suffering from chronic diseases and he has no previous criminal history.

It is also submitted that there is no apprehension that after being released on bail, applicant may flee from the course of law or may, otherwise, misuse the liberty of bail and the applicant is in jail since 18.1.2024 and the possibility of conclusion of trial in near future is very bleak.

A.G.A has, however, opposed the prayer for grant of bail.

 “Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, perusing the record and also considering the nature of allegations, arguments advanced by the counsel for the parties and without expressing any opinion on the merit of the case, I find it to be a fit case for granting bail”, the Court observed.
