Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Bhajan
Singh, verifies that the petitioner has joined investigation.
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 14.12.2016
is made absolute.
