SC grants bail to murder accused


New Delhi, Jul 1 (ILNS) The Supreme Court has granted bail to a man accused of causing death of a man by firing a shot into his mouth, stating that he has already undergone 15 years of actual incarceration and 19 years with remission and his appeal before the High Court pending since 2006, is not likely to be heard at an early date.

A Bench led by Justices Vineet Saran and Dinesh Maheshwari directed the Trial Court to enlarge the petitioner on bail on such terms and conditions, as may be imposed by the Trial Court. 

The plea before the Apex Court was directed against the order of bail dismissal by the Allahabad High Court. The petitioner in the instant case had sought relief of regular bail on parity before the High Court. The Trial Court had granted bail to co-accused in the same case who had also fired on the deceased, which had led to his death.

The High Court, after perusing the bail order of the Trial Court, had noted that there are certain discrepancies in the bail order of the co-accused and had issued notice to the co-accused as to why the High Court may not suo motu cancel its order dated February 6, 2009 passed in the present appeal granting bail and why he may not be taken into custody.

The High Court further noted, “With regard to the evidence that appellant Ravindra had also fired a shot, which injured the deceased in the internal part of mouth, leading to his death, we dismiss the prayer for bail.” ILNS/KR/RJ/SNG
