Neeru Yadav v. State of U.P. and Ors. - (29 Sep 2015)

Doctrine of parity? Some more equal than others



Deciding an appeal against grant of bail to the Respondent, a history-sheeter, the Supreme Court made sure to reiterate that it had not cancelled bail, merely annulled the High Court’s order for not having considered relevant factors. Noting the Respondent’s past criminal record, ranging from offences like murder and kidnap to possession of arms and indulging in ‘general firing’, the Court excavated Dostoevskian ways to expound its anguish against the High Court’s grant of bail. “…crimes are of a heinous nature and such crimes by no stretch of imagination, can be regarded as jejune. Such cases do create a thunder and lightning having the effect potentiality of torrential rain in an analytical mind.” Such a regale precipitated from the “clear as cloudless sky that the High Court has totally ignored the criminal antecedents of the accused”.
