Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Amrik
Singh, verifies that the petitioner has joined investigation and he is not
involved in any other criminal case.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the
petitioner is likely to abscond or that he 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 20.09.2017
is made absolute.
It is reiterated that none of the observations made herein above
are a reflection on the merits of the case and shall have no bearing on the
December 08, 2017 Judge
