Heard the learned Advocates appearing for the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the incident

We have considered the materials on record. We note that the
incident occurred ten years after marriage. In view of the facts and
circumstance of the case and in the light of the aforesaid
submission that the petitioner did not ordinarily reside at the
matrimonial home of the victim housewife, we are inclined in
granting anticipatory bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, we direct that 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 subject to the conditions as
laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure,
1973 and on condition that the petitioner shall appear before the
trial court and pray for regular bail within four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
