Advocate, appearing on behalf of the applicant has contended that
the applicant is Postmaster and he is an innocent person. He further
submitted that he has been wrongly arraigned in the case of the
prosecution. He also submitted that the complaint is filed after a
belated stage with a view to involve the applicant in the commission

contended that now the charge-sheet is filed and, therefore, there
is no question of tampering with any evidence by the applicant. He
also submitted that co-accused has been released by this Court.

the applicant and submitted that considering the seriousness of the
offence, the applicant is not required to be granted regular bail.

filed and, therefore, without entering into the merits of the
matter, I am inclined to grant bail to the applicant. Both the
