Punjab: Marriage ceremony Ceremony On Maintain, Lawyer Receives Bail For Purchasers – Occasions of India

CHANDIGARH: Impressed by the sincerity and devotion of a lawyer who appeared in court while his wedding ceremony was suspended to videoconference his case, the Punjab and Haryana Supreme Court granted the lawyer relief by giving his client an early bail .
The court, headed by Justice Arun Monga, also wished the lawyer a “blissful and happy married life” and even noted this in its order.
The judge learned that the attorney who argued the case prior to his marriage had married the day before and the morning “vidaai” or “doli” ceremony was interrupted when the attorney defied the state government's attempt to request an adjournment in the event.
The matter had arrived at the HC following a petition requesting early bail from Angrej Singh, a resident of Bathinda district in Punjab. He was booked on a case involving serious injury to the applicant and the FIR was registered at the Phul Police Station in Bathinda in May 2019.
The petition had previously been submitted for a hearing on August 18, but was adjourned to October 28 after the prosecutor sought time to respond to the matter.
The matter was brought back for hearing on October 28th. The petitioner's attorney, Attorney Lupil Gupta, alleged that despite a period of one year and five months from the date of FIR registration, no challan had been filed and even if the petitioner was allegedly required custody, he would therefore be entitled to a late payment deposit .
In response to a request from the court about a delay in filing Challan, the prosecutor again requested an adjournment for instructions from the police.
At that point, attorney Gupta denied the state's request for another adjournment, telling the court how he had argued the case while his wedding ceremony was on hold. After hearing the matter, Justice Monga noted that, given the extraordinary delay in the prosecution's filing of the challan, it appears to be an appropriate case for the petitioner to be granted an early bail at this point in time.
