I have heard the counsel for the parties and gone through the contents of the FIR.
This order be read in continuation of the earlier order dated August 25, 2006 passed by this Court.
Counsel for the petitioners contends that the only non-bailable offence is under Section 452 IPC and the said offence has also not been made out from the FIR. Counsel further contends that in terms of the aforesaid interim order, the petitioners have joined the investigation.
Counsel for the respondent-State does not dispute this fact and further on instructions from HC Gurpal Singh states that the petitioners are no more required for further investigation.
In view of the above and for the reasons stated in the interim order dated August 25, 2006, the same is made absolute on the same terms and conditions.
This bail order shall remain in operation till the investigation culminates into filing of challan under Section 173 Cr.P.C. except for material change in the circumstances. Thereafter, the petitioners shall be entitled to the grant of regular bail by the trial Court and the same shall further continue till conclusion of the trial on the conditions to be imposed by the court of competent jurisdiction.
Disposed of accordingly.
