The petitioner was arrested on 21.05.2016. Since then, he is in

judicial custody and no useful purpose would be served to further detain

him in jail. The final conclusion of trial will take a long time.

In view of above facts, the present petition is allowed. The

petitioner is ordered to be released on regular bail on his furnishing

adequate bail bonds and surety bonds to the satisfaction of learned trial

Judge/Duty Magistrate, Gurugram.

Needless to mention that, nothing observed here-in-above,

would reflect, on merits in the trial of the main case, in any manner.
