learned court below on December 8, 2017, he could not come out of jail due to

Having considered the entire facts and circumstances of the case and
submissions of the learned advocates for the parties, I dispose of the instant
revisional application granting liberty to the petitioner to approach the learned

frustrated due to imposition of unreasonable and unrealistic conditions which is
difficult to fulfill.
The instant revisional application is thus dispose of.
