bail looking to the nature and gravity of the offence.

4. Learned advocates appearing on behalf of the
respective parties do not press for further reasoned order.

5. I have heard learned advocates appearing on
behalf of the respective parties and considered the role played
by the applicant. I have perused the papers of investigation.
On the next date of lodgement of the FIR, when the
prosecutrix was traced out, she has stated that no act of
sexual intercourse was made by the applicant. However, in
her second statement, which was recorded after four days of
lodgement of the FIR, she has alleged about the said act. I
have gone through the medical certificate, which does not
support the second statement of the prosecutrix.

6. In the facts and circumstances of the case and
considering the nature of allegations made against the
applicant in the FIR, I am of the of the opinion that this is a fit
case to exercise the discretion and enlarge the applicant on
regular bail. Hence, the present application is allowed and the
applicant is ordered to be released on regular bail in
connection with an offence being C.R.No.I- 53 of 2016
