victim housewife and has been falsely implicated in the instant


Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail

and submits that the victim housewife was repeatedly

opposes the prayer for bail.

Having considered the materials on record and bearing

in mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged

conditions as enshrined hereinbefore, it is open to the trial

The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
