The petitioner is the husband of the victim.
The State opposes the prayer and refers to the previous conduct of

upon furnishing security of Rs. 10,000/- (Rupees ten thousand only), with
two sureties of Rs. 5,000/- (Rupees five thousand only) each, one of whom
must be local, to the satisfaction of the arresting officer, subject to the
conditions as laid down in Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal
Procedure, 1973. In addition, the petitioner will also attend the trial on
a regular basis on the dates fixed. In default of the petitioner
attending the trial, the trial Court will be at liberty to cancel the
defaulting petitioner’s bail without reference to this Court.
The petition for anticipatory bail is allowed subject to the
conditions as indicated above.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to the
petitioner, subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
