The applicant is in jail since 15.9.2017.
Per contra, learned AGA has vehemently opposed the prayer for grant of bail to the applicant but could not point out anything material to the contrary.
Seeing the facts of the case as well as submissions made by learned counsel for the parties and also perusing the material brought on record and also seeing the fact that similarly placed co-accuseds have already been granted bail, prima facie, a case for bail is made out. However, any observation made hereinabove, will not affect the trial of the case.
Let the applicant-Shahnoor, be released on bail on his furnishing a personal bond and two sureties each of the like amount to the satisfaction of the court concerned, subject to the following conditions:
1. The applicant shall co-operate in the investigation.
2. The applicant shall not tamper with the prosecution evidence.
3. The applicant shall not pressurize the prosecution witnesses.
