Dated this the 21st day of August, 2007
ORDERApplication for regular bail. Petitioner is the first accused. Crime has been registered under the provisions of Wild life (Protection) Act. The crux of the allegations is that the petitioner along with co-accused was found to be in possession of tiger skin in violation of the provisions of the Wild life (Protection) Act. The petitioner was arrested on 3.08.07. He continues in custody from that date. The learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the petitioner is absolutely innocent. Even accepting the allegations raised by the prosecution, what was seized was not genuine tiger skin at all. It was the skin of some other animal painted fraudulently to make it appear to be the skin of a tiger.
2. The learned counsel for the petitioner prays, the learned Public Prosecutor does not oppose the said prayer and I am satisfied that the petitioner can now be enlarged on bail subject to appropriate conditions.
3. In the result, this petition is allowed. The petitioner
B.A.No.5084 of 2007 2

bail on the following terms and conditions:
i) The petitioner shall execute a bond for Rs.50,000/- (Rupees fifty thousand only) with two solvent sureties each for the like sum to the satisfaction of the learned Magistrate. iii) The petitioner shall make himself available for interrogation before the Investigating Officer between 10 a.m and 12 noon on all Mondays and Fridays, for a period of three months. Thereafter, he shall make himself available for interrogation as and when directed by the investigating officer in writing to do so.
