Your AB is rejected.However the police is directed to investigate as per established norms and directions set forth in the said direction.
However the bail is rejected and if Police deems fit it can arrest you.
If this is order of sessions court, you can apply for AB another time in high court.

If the session court is reject the Anticipatory bail then approach the high court for getting the same.

1) Unfortunately the anticipatory bail is NOT Granted in your case. 

2) In your case it is only the complaint filed and NO FIR has been filed which means You have still plenty of chances of getting Regular bail from the Sessions/High Court itself upon the FIR being filed. 

3) The best option could have been to support the police investigation through your lawyer and then move the court for bail(regular/anticipatory)
