inordinate delay in lodging the first information report and it is

bearing in mind the nature of allegations and the fact that there is
delay in lodging the first information report, we are of the opinion

petitioner shall be released on anticipatory bail upon furnishing
bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) with two sureties
of like amount, to the satisfaction of the arresting officer on
condition that petitioner shall meet the investigating officer once
