The Gujarat High Court has granted regular bail to a Rohingya woman alleged to have committed offences under Sections 465, 467, 471, 114 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and 6 of the Passport Act and Sections 13, 14A(a) and 14A(b) of Foreigners Act.

The Applicant had submitted that considering the nature of allegations and the role of the Applicant, it was suitable to be released on bail. Per contra, the Respondent-Authority vehemently contended that the nature of the offence was grave and bail should not be granted.

Justice Rajendra Sareen while noting the law laid down in the Sanjay Chandra vs Central Bureau of Investigation [2012 1 SCC 40] case observed that the Applicant was in jail since July 2020 with three children. Additionally, the investigation was over and charge sheet had been filed and no allegation of document forgery could be made out. Further, the Applicant was a local resident and would not flee away.

Accordingly, she was directed to be released on a personal bond of INR 25,000 with local surety with the following conditions:

  1. She should not take undue advantage of liberty or misuse it
  2. Should not act in a manner injurious to the interest of the Prosecution
  3. Should surrender passport
  4. Should not leave India without prior permission of Sessions Judge
  5. Should furnish latest and permanent address of residence and mobile number to the IO.

Accordingly, the Bench allowed the Application.
