There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the

petitioner is likely to abscond or that he is likely to dissuade the

witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above,

specifically settlement/compromise dated 07.07.2017 but without

expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just and

expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, order dated 03.04.2017 is

made absolute.

However, liberty is afforded to respondent No.2 to move an

appropriate application in this matter, in case the terms and conditions of

settlement between the parties are not adhered to by the petitioner.
