The petitioner offers to pay a sum of Rs.5,000/- per

month for the maintenance of his wife. In view of such offer, the

petitioner will make over the payment for the month of January,

2019 by the 20th of this month and continue payments in a

similar manner for the subsequent months. In default of any

payment, the wife will entitle to seek cancellation. If any other

forum passes an order for maintenance or alimony pendente lite

or the like in favour of the wife, the payments made in terms of

this order will be adjusted against the same.

Subject to the payment for the month of the January,

2019 being first made, in the event of arrest, the petitioner is

directed to be released on bail upon furnishing a bond 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 laid down in Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal

Procedure, 1973. In addition, the petitioner will report to the

Investigating Officer at such time and place as may be specified

by the concerned police officer, till the investigation is completed.

The investigating Officer is directed to accompany the wife

to the matrimonial home so that the articles pointed out by the

wife as the stridhan articles can be removed from such place and

kept elsewhere subject to the direction of the trial court.

The petition for anticipatory bail is allowed on the

conditions indicated above.

A certified copy of this order be immediately made

available to the petitioner, subject to compliance with all

requisite formalities.
