The petitioner is in custody 143 days. Charge-sheet has

It is submitted by the learned Advocate appearing on behalf of
the petitioner that the victim housewife already submitted a petition
before the learned Court below disclosing that she had been staying
at her in-law’s house after settlement of the disputes.
Let a true copy of the affidavit affirmed by the victim housewife
and filed before the learned Court below be kept on record.
Our attentions have been drawn by the learned Advocate for
the State towards the statement of the victim housewife recorded
under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure as also the
report of her medical examination.
After perusal of the aforesaid materials in the case diary as

residing at her in-law’s house after settlement of the disputes, we are
inclined to grant bail in favour of the petitioner.
