Madras HC dismisses anticipatory bail plea of advocate

Press Trust of India  |  Madurai 

The Madras High today dismissed an anticipatory bail plea of an advocate in Tuticorin district against whom police had registered 18 criminal cases.

Dismissing the bail plea of Michael Stanis Prabhu, Justice S Vaidyanathan said, "Already profession was under severe criticism due to activities of some lawyers in the state."



"If the petitioner is allowed to wander in the society scot-free on obtaining anticipatory bail, it will further inflict injuries in the society."

According to prosecution, Prabhu intervened into the activities of the local Bar Association leading to dispute. He along with other accused had attacked the complainant on November 20 and caused him serious injuries.

The Advocate General also submitted that Prabhu was facing several criminal cases.

"Prabhu holds a responsible post in the Bar Council of and has the habit of misusing the post for his illegal and criminal activities," he submitted.

The Advocate General submitted that Prabhu was evading from inquiry by misusing his post and therefore he should not be granted anticipatory bail.

The judge said "If a doctor committed mistake, his patient will be six feet beneath the earth. If the lawyer committed mistake, his client will go six feet above earth (hanged). Some lawyers accumulate wealth through notoriety, corruption, deception, protection of despicable clients and protecting thieving clients which made Adolf Hitler to utter that I shall not rest until every German sees that it is a shameful thing to be a lawyer."

"In the present case, leniency cannot be shown to the petitioner as he has indulged in a very serious offence of stabbing the de facto complainant with machete, on account of which his intestine was made visible to the naked eyes," the judge said dismissing the anticipatory bail plea.
