Pre-Arrest Bail To Accused In Assault Of On-Duty Police Officials Sends Wrong Signal To Society, Demoralises Public Servants: P & H HC

“If the concession of pre-arrest bail is granted to the persons accused of assaulting public servants on duty, that may further embolden the people to take law in their own hands and indulge in further such acts, resultantly demoralising such public servants especially when they are from Law Enforcement Agency”, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has observed.
Justice H. S. Madaan was considering pleas for anticipatory bail in connection with a FIR under sections Section 353, 186, 188, 342, 323, 149 IPC and Section 51 of Disaster Management Act (Sections 188 IPC and Section 51 of Disaster Management Act, added later on), for allegedly beating up two police officials who had intervened to break up a fight between some men and women on a road. Per the prosecution story, the accused assailants had not only physically assaulted the cops, they had also inflicted injuries on their own selves to implicate the officers in a false case.
