is not entitled to concession of regular bail.
4. I have heard learned counsel for the parties.
5. Since the challan has already been presented and statement of
prosecutrix has been record and the trial is likely to take some time to
conclude, no useful purpose would be served in keeping the petitioner
behind the bars. The instant petition is allowed and the petitioner is
directed to be released on regular bail on execution of adequate personal
bond and surety bond to the satisfaction of concerned trial Court/Duty
Magistrate. However, any observation made herein shall not be construed
to be an expression on merits of the case.
