the court or to any police officer;

to apply to the competent Magistrate, for Police remand of the applicant.

first   date   of   hearing   of   such   application   and   on   all   subsequent 

occasions, as may be directed by the learned Magistrate. This would be 

sufficient to treat the accused in the judicial custody for the purpose of 

entertaining  application  of the  prosecution  for police  remand.  This  is, 

however,   without   prejudice   to   the   right   of   the   accused   to   seek   stay 

against an order of remand, if, ultimately, granted, and the power of the

learned Magistrate to consider such a request in accordance with law. It 

is clarified that the applicant, 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.

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

facie observations made by this Court while enlarging the applicant on 

bail.   Rule   is   made   absolute   to   the   above   extent.  Direct   service  is 

permitted.
