upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- each, with two sureties of
like amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of
the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Purba Medinipur on condition that

in any manner whatsoever and he shall appear before the trial
court on every date of hearing and in the event he fails to do so,
the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel the petitioners bail
without further reference to this Court.
The application for bail is, accordingly, allowed.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to
the petitioners subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
