with  Madhupura Police Station.

4. Learned   advocate   appearing   on   behalf   of   the   applicant   would 

submit   that   considering   the   nature   of   offence,   the   applicant   may   be 

enlarged on anticipatory bail by imposing suitable conditions. Learned 

Advocate  for the applicant  on instructions  states  that the  applicant  is 

ready and willing to abide by all the conditions, including the condition 

with regard to the powers of Investigating Agency to seek remand of the 

petitioner; subject to the petitioners right to oppose it.

5. On the other hand, learned advocate for  the original complainant 

and the learned APP appearing for the respondent­State have opposed 

this application.

6. Having   considered   the   rival   contentions   including   that   of   the 

complainant   as   also   having   taken   into   consideration   the   dying 

declaration   and   the   audio   transcript   of   the   deceased,   prima   facie   a 

question arises whether the acts complained of by the deceased were 

done with a  mens rea  that by such acts, the deceased would commit 

suicide or cause the bodily injury to herself. The dying declaration of the 

deceased  prima facie indicates the frequent quarrel amongst the family 

members including by the deceased. Heavy burden would lie upon the 

prosecution to establish that such acts would fall within the four corners 

of section 107 of IPC giving rise to the offence punishable under section

(f) not leave India without the permission of the Court and if 

having   passport,   shall   deposit   the   same   before   the   Trial 

Court within a week; and 

(g) it would be open to the Investigating Officer to file an 

application for remand if he considers it proper and just and 

the learned Magistrate would decide the same on merits;

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 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 applicant on 

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