From the perusal of material on record, it could not be said that no case is made out against the petitioner. Therefore, at this stage no interference is called for by this Court. The petition lacks merit.
However, if the petitioner surrenders before the court below within three weeks from today and moves bail application, the same shall be considered and disposed of expeditiously in accordance with law and also keeping in view the directions contained in the judgment delivered by the Apex Court reported in 2009 (3) ADJ 322 (SC) (Lal Kamlendra Pratap Singh Vs. State of U.P.), in case the accused petitioner has not yet been surrendered and applied for bail.
For three weeks or till the date of surrender, whichever is earlier, no coercive steps shall be taken against the petitioner.
With this observation, the petition is finally disposed of.
