Learned counsel for respondent No. 2 submits that his
client has no objection, in case, this petition is allowed subject to strict
adherence to the terms and conditions of the settlement.
Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI
Lakhbir Singh, verifies that the petitioner has joined investigation.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the
petitioner is likely to abscond or that she is likely to dissuade the
witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.
Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above
but without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is
considered just and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently,
order dated 03.06.2016 is made absolute.
