(2.) The matter was earlier taken up on 25.11.2020 and the counsel appearing on behalf of the petitioner had made a prayer for withdrawal of this application on the ground that during pendency of this regular bail application, a second bail application was filed by the petitioner before the court below and the petitioner was granted bail while his application for grant of regular bail was pending in the High Court.
