New Delhi, Jun 30 (ILNS) The Supreme Court today refused to grant bail to an accused, while issuing notice to the state of Punjab on the matter.
A three-Judge Bench of Justice U U Lalit, Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Ajay Rastogi sought the response of the State of Punjab on or before August 27, 2021.
The High Court of Punjab and Haryana had rejected the bail application, making an observation that the injury attributed to the petitioner is a fracture on the left parietal bone seen with extension into left frontal and right parietal bones, which is vital part- head of the victim. Thus, no case for grant of regular bail to the petitioner is made out.
The accused in the present petition is charged under Sections 307, 323, 506 and 34 of IPC. Though, the Counsel for the petitioner has not disputed the fact that the petitioner has inflicted two head injuries to complainant Parveen Singh, yet he submitted that the petitioner being behind the bars since April 9, 2020, his further incarceration is not justified. He also submitted that out of four injuries, three have been found to be simple and only one injury has been declared dangerous to life. ILNS/
