Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the
nature of allegations in the light of the aforesaid submission made on
behalf of the petitioners relating to accidental burns which finds
corroboration from the endorsement made in the medical papers and the
statements of witnesses, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to them.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the petitioners shall
be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- each, 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 they shall
appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a period of
four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, allowed.
