3. After hearing both sides and after careful evaluation of the facts

investigation in this crime. Hence, it is ordered in the interest of justice

that in the event of the petitioner being arrested in connection with the

instant crime, he shall be released on bail on his executing a bond for

Rs.40,000/- (Rupees Forty Thousand only) and on his furnishing two

(iii) The petitioner shall report before the Investigating Officer as
