Magistrate  on the first  date  of hearing  of such  application  and  on all

the   purpose   of   entertaining   application   of   the   prosecution   for   police 

remand. This is, however, without prejudice to the right of the accused

power   of   the   learned   Magistrate   to   consider   such   a   request   in 

accordance with law. It is clarified that the applicants, even if, remanded 

to the Police custody, upon completion of such period of Police remand, 

shall   be   set   free   immediately,   subject   to   other   conditions   of   this 

anticipatory bail order.

9. At the trial, the Trial Court shall not be influenced by the prima­

facie observations made by this Court while enlarging the applicants on 

bail.  Rule is made is made absolute. Direct service is permitted.
