Petitioners, who are accused Nos.1 to 4 in Crime No.

under Sections 323, 294(b), 354 and 427 I.P.C. and 3(I) (X) (XI) of
SC / ST (POA) Act, seek anticipatory bail.
2. The learned Public Prosecutor opposed the application.
3. Anticipatory bail cannot be granted in a case of this
nature. But at the same time, I am inclined to permit the 1st
petitioner to surrender before the Investigating Officer for the
purpose of interrogation and then to have his application for bail
considered by the Magistrate having jurisdiction. Accordingly,
the 1st petitioner shall surrender before the investigating officer
on 18.8.2010 or on 19.8.2010 for the purpose of
interrogation and recovery of incriminating material, if any. The
1st petitioner shall thereafter appear before the Magistrate who
on being satisfied that the 1st petitioner has been interrogated by
the Police, shall consider and dispose of his application for
regular bail preferably on the same date on which it is filed.
