P.S. FIR No. 42/2016 dated 17.01.2016 under Sections

498A/323/325/307/34 of the Indian Penal Code, the petitioners

(husband, parents-in-law and co-villagers of the victim) have

presented this application for a direction that in the event of such

arrest, they may be released on bail.

It is, accordingly, directed that in the event of arrest, the

petitioners 2 to 5 shall be released on bail upon furnishing bond of

arresting officer and subject to the conditions as laid down in sub-

section (2) of section 438 of the Cr. P.C.

C.R.M. 5614 of 2017 thus stands disposed of.
