that steps are necessary for recovery of stridhan articles.

Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the State opposes

the prayer for anticipatory bail.

Having considered the materials in the case diary and

bearing in mind the nature of allegations, we are of the opinion

that though custodial interrogation of the petitioner may not be

necessary, petitioner requires to cooperate with the investigation

including recovery of stridhan articles.

In the event of arrest, the petitioner shall be released on

bail upon furnishing a Bond of Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of

like amount each to the satisfaction of the Arresting Officer and

also be subject to the conditions as laid down under Section

438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further

condition that he shall meet the investigating officer once in a

week until further orders.

The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
