ਪੇਸ਼ਗੀ ਜ਼ਮਾਨਤ ਦੇ ਨੁਕਸਾਨ (Effects of Anticipatory Bail)

ਪੇਸ਼ਗੀ ਜ਼ਮਾਨਤ ਦੇ ਨੁਕਸਾਨ (Effects of Anticipatory Bail)

 1.ਪੇਸ਼ਗੀ ਜ਼ਮਾਨਤ ਹੋਣ ਨਾਲ ਤਫਤੀਸ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਵਿਘਨ ਪੈਂਦਾ ਹੈ।

Case : Pokar Ram Vs. State of Rajasthan, 1985 Crl.L.J. 1175 (1)  (SC)

Para “11. anticipatory bail to some extent intrudes in the sphere of investigation of crime.”

 2. ਪੇਸ਼ਗੀ ਜ਼ਮਾਨਤ ਹੋਣ ਨਾਲ ਤਫਤੀਸ਼ ਨੂੰ ਨੁਕਸਾਨ ਪੁੱਜਦਾ ਹੈ। ਇਸ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਜਿਸ਼ ਦੇ ਭੇਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਖੋਲਣ ਵਿੱਚ ਮੁਸ਼ਕਿਲ ਪੇਸ਼ ਆਉਂਦੀ ਹੈ। ਇਸ ਨਾਲ ਲੋਕ ਹਿਤ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ ਨੁਕਸਾਨ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ।

Case : State of A.P. Vs. Bimal Krishna Kundu and another, 1997 Cr.L.J. 4056 (SC)

Para “13. We have absolutely no doubt that if respondents are equipped with such an order before they are interrogated by the police it would greatly harm the investigation and would impede the prospects of unearthing all the ramifications involved in the conspiracy. Public interest also would suffer as a consequence.”

 3. ਪੇਸ਼ਗੀ ਜ਼ਮਾਨਤ ਹੋਣ ਬਾਅਦ ਦੋਸ਼ੀ ਤੋਂ ਪੁੱਛ-ਗਿੱਛ ਇੱਕ ਰਸਮ (ritual) ਬਣ ਕੇ ਰਹਿ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ।

Case (i) : State Rep. by the CBI Vs. Anil Sharma, 1997 Cr.L.J.4414 (SC)

 Para “6. Success in such interrogation would elude if the suspected person knows that he is well protected and insulated by a pre-arrest bail order during the time he is interrogated. Very often interrogation in such a condition would reduce to a mere ritual.”

Case (ii) : Er. K.K.Jerath Vs. Union Terrority and others, 1998 Cr.L.J. 2555 (SC)

Para “2. ….. The High Court is also of the view that the assurance that the petitioner would co-operate with the investigating agency in the interrogation would be a matter of mere ritual and custodial interrogation would be more appropriate in such a matter…”
