Women are epicenters of family life, deserve preferential treatment in bail cases: Karnataka High Court

Among other observations, the High Court noted that the first information report (FIR) filed in the kidnapping case by the victim’s son only demanded action against HD Revanna and one Satish Babanna. Bhavani Revanna was not initially implicated, the Court noted.

The Court further found merit in the submission made by Bhavani Revanna’s lawyer, Senior Advocate CV Nagesh ,that the cited offence of Section 364A (kidnapping for ransom, etc) of the Indian Penal Court (IPC) does not appear to have been made out against Bhavani Revanna.

“There is not even a whisper that the argued risk to abductee’s life is at the instance of petitioner (Bhavani Revanna)…the contention that the case involves heinous offences that should abhor the request for bail, regular or anticipatory, does not merit acceptance,” the Court observed.
