At the outset, it is argued on behalf of the State that proclamation
and attachment have been issued against the petitioners. We have

We have considered the materials on record including the
statement of the victim recorded under Section 164 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure. Keeping in mind the materials on record and in
view of the extent of complicity of the petitioners in the alleged crime,
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 fortnight from date..
Accordingly application for anticipatory bail is allowed.
