We have considered materials on record including the

medical records. Medical papers disclose an incident in January

confidence in the mind of the de facto complainant wife.

the Arresting Officer and also be subject to the conditions as laid

week until further orders and shall provide the address where he

shall presently reside to the investigating officer as well as court

below while on bail.

hand over his passport, if any, within a fortnight from date. In the
