Early Times Report

JAMMU, July 10: Additional Sessions Judge Jammu Tahir Khurshid Raina today rejected the bail application of one Ashok Kumar who was allegedly involved in misappropriation of government ration meant for public.
While rejecting the bail application, Additional Sessions Judge Jammu after hearing Advocate P C Sharma for the applicant whereas Sr. PO for the State, observed that fact remains that these Government Ration Depots are meant to give eatables to poor people on the meager rate so that this section of have-nots of the society can survive without starvation.
"The irony is that by its misappropriation by people like accused and their ilk, the target beneficiary of the govt remains deprived of their due share. It is to ensure two course meals a day to the poor, but when this lofty goal of the government gets frustrated mid way by the greedy people like accused and co-accused, the whole object of welfare state gets frustrated and the sufferer is the already suffering class of the society who are toiling hard to address their hunger, to have food just for their mere survival," said the judge.
The Court further observed that when the poor are dying on account of starvation and Government is trying its best to address this grave issue by providing food items to such people at a meager rate, the accused and their ilk are frustrating this lofty acts of the government, just for satisfying their own greed of having enough of money and material at their disposal.
However, whole material on record manifestly reflects the rank criminality of the accused whereby he has deprived the poor and common people of their rights and due shares. Such accused cannot now claim his right to life and liberty. His incarnation is must in the interest of the society to save the society of his detestable activities. It is a message to him and his ilk not to resort to such nefarious practices whereby they enjoy their rights to the fullest and misuse them as well at the cost of others, the judge observed.
The Court further observed that as per the fresh status report dated 07.07.2019 filed before the court and as stated by the 1.0 , the son of the accused/applicant who is co-accused in the case is entrusted with the Govt Ration Depot for supply of same to the people of area where the said Govt Depot is located.
The judge while rejecting the bail application, observed that though bail is a rule and Jail is an exception, but they said principle of criminal justice system has to be applied justly not blindly. Keeping in view principles laid down for grant of bail and when seen in context of whole chain of facts revealed in the foregoing paras, court feels apt not to exercise discretion of grant of bail in favour of accused at this stage of investigation.
