2 Learned APP submitted that husband of the

complainant has been arrested and subsequently he was released

on bail. There are allegations of harassment to the complainant.

During the investigation, the investigating machinery had carried

out search at the residence of the applicants, as well as the place

where the complainant and her husband were residing. The

ornaments could not be recovered, however, certain articles and

cash amount of Rs.3,05,200/-, approximately has been recovered

by the police.

3 It is noticed that the Sessions Court had rejected the

application for anticipatory bail on the ground that the applicants

were not arrested in pursuant to the notice under Section 41A of

Criminal Procedure Code. Since there is apprehension of arrest,

the protection can be granted to the applicants under Section 438

of Criminal Procedure Code. The husband of the complainant has

been arrested and he has been granted bail. The search carried

out in the residence of the accused have resulted in recovery of

certain articles. Applicant nos.1 and 2 are senior citizens. They

are the residents of Telengana. In the circumstances, bail can be

granted to the applicants, as custodial interrogation is not
