The Court summarized that Section 437(6) of Cr.P.C is discretionary in nature and the grant of bail will depend on the existing facts of the case. If the bail is to be refused, the delay of 60 days should be attributable to the accused.

The petitioner prayed to release him on bail in connection with 2019 case pending in the court of the S.D.J.M., Keonjhar. The offences alleged in this case are under Sections 468/471/420/34 of the Indian Penal Code on the allegation that the petitioner being the C.E.O. of a company, managed to cheat some innocent villagers in collecting lakhs of rupees giving false assurance of providing monthly stipend and livestock to them.
