Jitendrakumar Ramjibhai Detroja Vs State of Gujarat (Gujarat High Court)

Introduction: In the recent case of Jitendrakumar Ramjibhai Detroja Vs State of Gujarat, the Gujarat High Court granted anticipatory bail to a public servant in a case registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act. The primary reason for the court’s decision was that custodial interrogation was deemed unnecessary at this stage of proceedings.

Analysis: Jitendrakumar Ramjibhai Detroja, the applicant, sought anticipatory bail in relation to an FIR registered for various offenses under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the IPC. The applicant’s counsel argued that the nature of allegations were such that custodial interrogation was not necessary and the applicant would cooperate during the investigation and trial.

The Court granted anticipatory bail to the applicant after considering several aspects such as the applicant not being named in the FIR, the delay of seven years in seeking to arrest the applicant, and the lack of material against the applicant apart from one telephonic conversation. The Court also noted that the applicant has cooperated with the investigation, and there was no indication that the applicant would not continue to cooperate.

In making its decision, the Court referred to the principles laid down by the Supreme Court in Siddharam Satlingappa Mhetre Vs. State of Maharashtra and Shri Gurubaksh Singh Sibbia & Ors. Vs. State of Punjab regarding the granting of anticipatory bail.
