At the time of arguments, learned State counsel stated that

offence under Section 354 IPC has been deleted in this case and one of the

petitioners namely Varinder Singh has been found innocent.

In pursuance of the interim order dated 07.04.2017 passed by

this Court, the petitioners have already joined the investigation. They are

not required for custodial interrogation. Therefore, no useful purpose will

be served by sending the petitioners to custody.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the present

case; without discussing the facts of the case in minute details and without

expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I find merit in this petition

and the same is allowed. The order dated 07.04.2017, granting interim bail

to the petitioners, is made absolute. However, the petitioners shall join the

investigation as and when called upon to do so and shall abide by the

conditions of Section 438 (2) Cr.P.C.
