    Excerpt From The Judgment

    1. The status report has been filed. It is clearly mentioned in the said report that on 17th January, 2015 the learned Metropolitan Magistrate had passed an order against the petitioner declaring him as a "proclaimed offender". In this context, learned APP for the State has referred a decision of the Supreme Court in the case of "State of Madhya Pradesh v. Pradeep Sharma", AIR 2014 Supreme Court 626, para 12 of the judgment reads as under: "12. From these materials and information, it is clear that the present Appellant was not available for interrogation and investigation and was declared as "absconder". Normally, when the accused is "absconding" and declared as a "proclaimed offender", there is no question of granting anticipatory bail. We reiterate that when a person against whom a warrant had been issued and is absconding or concealing himself in order to avoid execution of warrant and declared as a proclaimed offender in terms of Section 82 of the Code he is not entitled to the relief of anticipatory bail."
    1. As far as the present petition is concerned, I find force in the submissions made by learned APP for the State and I am not inclined to allow the same.
    2. The petition is accordingly dismissed. Dasti.
