Application for anticipatory bail. The petitioners, a nun and a worker employed, apprehend that they may be arrested by the police on the allegation that they have committed offences punishable under Sections 447and 379 r/w. 34 I.P.C. and Section 3 of the P.D.P.P. Act. The learned counsel for the petitioners submits that there was no culpable intention at all and all the available indications point to the fact that the petitioners were acting bonafide, even assuming that such impression was erroneous. They may be spared of the trauma of arrest and incarceration, it is prayed.

2. The learned Prosecutor does not raise any objection. He only prays that appropriate conditions may be imposed.

3. Having considered all the relevant inputs, I am satisfied that this is a fit case where the discretion under Section 438 Cr.P.C. can and ought to be invoked in favour of the petitioners. B.A.No. 3642 of 2007 2
