Chandigarh, June 9
A local court has issued notice to the police on the bail application filed by Sanjeev Mahajan, one of the accused in the alleged property grab case at Sector 37, Chandigarh.
The court has fixed June 16 as the next date of hearing. Mahajan has filed a bail application through advocate Rajesh Sharma. He was arrested on March 2, 2021, with another accused Manish Gupta. Rajesh Sharma claimed that Mahajan was falsely implicated by the police in the case.
He said bare perusal of the FIR would show that the offences as alleged are prima facie not against the accused. He claimed that nothing incriminating was found during his police custody or during the search of his house.
Sharma claimed that Mahajan was never part of an inquiry conducted by the DSP. However, on March 1, he was called to the police station and detained. Sharma claimed that the complainant in the case himself submitted another statement to the police on February 6 that after lodging the complaint, he came to know that Mahajan was falsely mentioned and that no action should be taken against Mahajan.
Sharma said Mahajan had been falsely booked in criminal cases by the police as he had exposed wrongdoings of government officials, politicians and hardcore criminals.
The prosecution has already presented a challan in the court and the trial of the present case may take a long time. Sharma said that due to Covid, the jail inmates are at a high risk of being infected and the Supreme Court had also ordered releasing the inmates generously in view of pandemic. Sharma said the High Court had also granted bail to another accused Manish Gupta in the case.
