(2) The bond shall be in such form as may be provided under the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898; and the provisions of the said Code shall, in so far as they are applicable, apply to all matters connected with such bond, as if it were a bond to keep the peace ordered to be executed under section 106 of the said Code.]
