It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are

We have considered the materials in the case diary
including the statement of the victim as transpiring from the
medical papers and keeping in mind the extent of complicity of the
petitioners in the alleged crime, we are of the opinion that
custodial interrogation of the petitioners may not be necessary in
