According to this judgment of Jharkhand high court on Jul 7, 2014, Sujit Kumar was denied anticipatory bail by the high court on 7th Jul 2014. However, the judgment does mention reference to Arnesh Kumar Vs. State of Bihar & Anr SC judgment of Jul 2, 2014, which means that within 5 days of SC judgment, the high courts of the country were aware about it and instructing trial courts to follow it too.
The learned A.P.P. appearing for the State opposes the prayer for grant of anticipatory bail and submits that on 30.04.2014 the learned trial court had ordered issuance of process under Section 82 Cr.P.C.
In view of the above, I am not inclined to entertain his application seeking grant of anticipatory bail.
However, since this Court has not expressed any opinion on the merits of the case, if the applicant appears before the trial court and seek grant of regular bail, his application would be decided on its own merit and without being influenced by the dismissal of the present application. It is further ordered that the learned trial court while deciding the application on behalf of applicant would keep in mind order dated 02.07.2014 in “Arnesh Kumar Vs. State of Bihar & Anr.” , in Criminal Appeal No. 1277 of 2014 [SLP (Crl.) No. 9127 of 2013] wherein, the Hon’ble Supreme Supreme Court had issued several directions in so far as arrest in offences for which maximum punishment is seven years is concerned. It is further ordered that if any application, with clear two days’ notice to the A.P.P. and the counsel for the complainant is moved in the trial court, the same would be decided by the trial court on the same day, keeping in view the fact that the complainant does not want to stay with her husband.
