The petitioner, along with others, is accused of abducting the minor niece of the informant for the purpose of marriage.

Learned counsel further submits that subsequently the girl has also appeared before the Court and recorded her statement under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (hereinafter referred to as the 'Code') in which she has stated that she had married the petitioner on her own free will and there was no kidnapping. She has also said that she was living with the petitioner and his family members. Copy of the said deposition has been brought on record by way of supplementary affidavit filed on behalf of the petitioner. It is also submitted that the petitioner has no criminal antecedent. Learned A.P.P. for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail.
