New Delhi, June 4

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail given by the Delhi High Court to Mumbai-based TV journalist Varun Hiremath, accused of raping a 22-year-old woman in the national capital.

“We find no reason to interfere. The special leave petition is dismissed,” said a Bench, led by Justice Navin Sinha, rejecting the complainant's petition challenging the May 13 order of the Delhi High Court granting pre-arrest bail to Hiremath.

“If a man and woman are in a room, the man makes a request and the woman complies with it, do we need to say anything more at this stage?” the Bench, which also included Justice Ajay Rastogi, told senior advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan, who represented the complainant.

The Bench, however, made it clear its observation was purely for purpose of deciding the question of bail only.
