Case :- APPLICATION U/S 482 No. - 29025 of 2019 Applicant :- Waliullah And Another Opposite Party :- State Of Up And Another Counsel for Applicant :- Upendra Kumar Mishra Counsel for Opposite Party :- G.A.
Hon'ble Om Prakash-VII,J.
The present application under Section 482 Cr.P.C. has been filed by the applicants with the prayer to quash the entire proceedings of complaint case no. 942 of 2017 under Sections 323, 504, 506 IPC, Police Station Patherwa, District - Kushinagar pending in the Court of Judicial Magistrate, Kasya, Kushinagar as well as summoning order dated 30.5.2019 passed by the court concerned. Further prayer has been made to stay the further proceedings of the aforesaid case.
Heard learned counsel for the applicants and the learned AGA appearing for the State.
It is submitted by the learned counsel for the applicants that the applicants and opposite party no.2 are steps brothers. One F.I.R. had already been lodged on 24.11.2016 against the opposite party no.2 by the applicants regarding the offence said to have been committed on 19.11.2016 punishable under sections 323, 308, 504, 506 IPC. Present complaint has been filed as a counter blast with malafide intention showing the same date of offence. It is further submitted that since the applicant no.2 was hospitalized, he could not lodge the F.I.R. on the date of incident. Continuation of the proceedings of the aforesaid complaint case is an abuse of process of law. The impugned order suffers from illegality and infirmity.
On the other hand, learned AGA has submitted that applicants have been summoned on the basis of the statements recorded under Sections 200 Cr.P.C. and 202 Cr.P.C.. The impugned order does not suffer from any illegality or infirmity.
Having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case, after perusing the entire record and having considered the submissions made by the learned counsel for the parties, I am of the view that no case is made out to interfere with the impugned order. The impugned order does not suffer from any infirmity or illegality. The Magistrate dealing with complaint at this stage has to see only prima-facie case and it cannot be said that no prima-facie case is made out against the applicants. Further, the plea raised before this Court would require leading of evidence, which can be raised before the court concerned at the appropriate Stage. Hence, the prayer made in the present application is refused.
At this stage, learned counsel for the applicants prays that a direction may be issued to the court below for expeditious disposal of the bail application of the applicants.
Hence, it is directed that in case the applicants surrender before the court below and apply for bail within 30 days from today, the same shall be considered and decided in view of the settled law. For a period of 30 days from today, no coercive action shall be taken against the applicants.
It is made clear that no further time shall be allowed to the applicants for surrender before the court concerned.
With the above observations, the application stands disposed of.
