connected with the offence alleged against him. He further submits that other
accused persons have already been granted anticipatory bail by the Learned

We have considered the submission of the learned advocate appearing for
the respective parties and have perused the case diary including the statements
recorded under Section 161 Cr.P.C. and the reported suicide note.
