Agency to apply to the competent Magistrate, for police remand of
the applicant. The applicant shall remain present before the learned
Magistrate on the first date of hearing of such application and on
all subsequent occasions, as may be directed by the learned
Magistrate. This would be sufficient to treat the accused in the
judicial custody for the purpose of entertaining application of the
prosecution for police remand. This is, however, without prejudice
to the right of the accused to seek stay against an order of remand,
if, ultimately, granted, and the power of the learned Magistrate to
consider such a request in accordance with law. It is clarified that
the applicant, even if, remanded to the police custody, upon

order.
