At the time of arguments, learned State counsel stated that
offence under Section 354 IPC has been deleted in this case and one of the
petitioners namely Varinder Singh has been found innocent.
In pursuance of the interim order dated 07.04.2017 passed by
this Court, the petitioners have already joined the investigation. They are
not required for custodial interrogation. Therefore, no useful purpose will
be served by sending the petitioners to custody.
Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the present
case; without discussing the facts of the case in minute details and without
expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I find merit in this petition
and the same is allowed. The order dated 07.04.2017, granting interim bail
to the petitioners, is made absolute. However, the petitioners shall join the
investigation as and when called upon to do so and shall abide by the
conditions of Section 438 (2) Cr.P.C.
