“The petitioner is a woman. In the event of the situation due to the Covid19 pandemic, the aspect of continuing custody of the petitioner is also worth considering. The petitioner claimed that a minor son and others are dependent on him. Since we are of the view that Prima facie the offense punishable under section 467, which involves imprisonment for life, is not made out, in the peculiar facts of the case, the above factors persuade us to grant bail to the petitioner till such time as it is considered. Section 467 of the Penal Code and petition for quashing of charge of offenses punishable under 468.
The court further said,
“In light of the legal position reverting to the facts of the case, prima facie, PhD certificate does not come within the scope of the definition of valuable security. The internal evidence submitted by the prosecution that the PhD certificate falsifies the fact gives that the certificate is forged, if seen in the background of the patent typographic and grammatical mistake, may have some substance. However, at this stage, the charge for an offense punishable under section 465 can be said to be It is prima facie made out. The further issue whether an offense punishable under section 467 of the Penal Code has been made is a matter to be considered. Since the investigation is in progress, we propose to consider the same. Let’s not delve deeply into this aspect of the matter. It will be sufficient to see that the question of the complicity of the petitioner for an offense punishable under section 467 of the Penal Code will be maintainable and examination.”
On 27 June 2021, Swapna was granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
