Learned senior counsel appearing on behalf of the

prayer for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing
in mind the general and omnibus nature of allegations against
the petitioner nos.1 to 3 who are the in-laws of the victim
housewife and the fact that the principal accused, that is the
husband, is in custody, we are of the opinion that custodial
interrogation of the petitioner nos. 1 to 3 may not be necessary
for the purpose of the instant case and they may be granted
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the
petitioner nos.1 to 3 shall be released on bail upon furnishing
bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) each with two
sureties of like amount each to the satisfaction of the arresting
officer and also subject to the conditions as laid down under
