Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the
prayer for bail of the petitioner was earlier rejected by this Court
and petitioner is in custody since January 2009 i.e. more than two

A report was called from the court concerned
regarding the stage of the trial. Report has come, which shows
that seven witnesses have already been examined by the
prosecution and four witnesses are still to be examined.

mentioned in the charge sheet have been examined, but all of
them have been declared hostile except P.W.6.
