(2) Such inquiry shall be made, as nearly as may be practicable, in the manner hereinafter prescribed for conducting trial and recording evidence in summons-cases.
(3) After the commencement, and before the completion, of
the inquiry under sub-section (1), the Magistrate, if he
considers that immediate measures are necessary for the
prevention of a breach of the peace or disturbance of the
public tranquility or the commission of any offence or for
the public safety, may, for reasons to be recorded in
writing, direct the person in respect of whom the order
under section 111 has been made to execute a bond, with or
without sureties, for keeping the peace or maintaining good
behaviour until the conclusion of the inquiry, and may
detail him in custody until such bond is executed or, in
default of execution, until the inquiry is concluded:
(a) no person against whom proceedings are not being taken under section 108, section 109, or section 110 shall be directed to execute a bond for maintaining good behaviour;
(b) the conditions of such bond, whether as to the amount thereof or as to the provision of sureties or the number thereof or the pecuniary extent of their liability, shall not be more onerous than those specified in the order under section 111.
(4) For the purpose of this section the fact that a person is an habitual offender or is so desperate and dangerous as to render his being at large without security hazardous to the community may be proved by evidence of general repute or otherwise.
(5) Where two or more persons have been associated together in the matter under inquiry, they may be dealt with in the same or separate inquiries as the Magistrate shall think just.
(6) The inquiry under this section shall be completed within a period of six months from the date of its commencement, and if such inquiry is not so completed, the proceedings under this Chapter shall on the expiry of the said period, stand terminated unless, for special reasons to be recorded in writing, the Magistrate otherwise directs:

(a) no person shall be ordered to give security of a nature different from, or of an amount large than, or for a period longer than, that specified in the order made under section 111;
