Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Fauji

Ram, submits that the petitioner has joined investigation. He is not required

for custodial interrogation.

There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the

petitioner is likely to abscond, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances especially the

settlement arrived at between the parties but without expressing any opinion

on the merits of case, it is considered just and expedient to allow this

petition. Consequently, order dated 17.03.2017 is made absolute.

application in case the petitioner does not comply with or adhere to the

terms and conditions of the settlement arrived at between the parties.
