Murder case accused denied bail

Murder case accused denied bail

Chandigarh, July 21

Saying that long custody does not make the accused entitled to the concession of bail, a local court has rejected the bail application of accused Amandeep who was arrested in a one-year-old alleged murder case.

The police registered the FIR on a complaint of a Maloya resident, Jugnu, who alleged that some persons killed his son Sandeep. He alleged that his son was attacked on August 23, 2020, in colony number 4, Chandigarh. The police arrested Amandeep along with other accused after registering the FIR under sections 323, 302, 34, 120-B of the IPC at the Industrial Area police station.

The counsel for the applicant argued that the accused was falsely implicated in the case. The only allegations against the applicant are that he was present at the alleged place of occurrence and he thrashed the victim with kicks and fist blows. There was no enmity between the victim and the applicant. The trial will take a long time to conclude.

The additional public prosecutor opposed the bail on the grounds of gravity of the offence. After hearing the arguments, the court said it was the settled law that mere long custody did not make the accused entitled to the concession of bail. Accordingly, finding no merit in the application in hand, the bail application is dismissed. — TNS
