New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday rejected the bail plea of a taxi driver who allegedly kidnapped and raped a girl after taking her to a deserted place, saying he was accused of a heinous offence and did not deserve any concession.

Additional Sessions Judge Vijay Kumar Dahiya dismissed the bail application of Anuj Saini, a resident of west Delhi, saying the offence that the applicant (Anuj) was accused of was heinous.

"And in view of the fact that recovery of articles has been effected from the place of incident which connects the accused with the alleged offence, I am of the view that accused Anuj Saini does not deserve concession of bail," the court said, while dismissing his bail application.

An FIR in the case was lodged on the statement of the girl, who used to work in a beauty parlour in Gurgaon in Haryana.

On January 18, this year when the victim was returning from her work place, the taxi driver stopped near her at a bus stand and offered a lift to the victim and some others waiting there, saying that he was going towards Mahipalpur here, the prosecution said.

As soon as the victim got into the car, the driver instead of going towards Mahipalpur, drove the vehicle to a deserted place and raped her, the prosecution said.

Seeking bail, counsel for Anuj told the court that investigation in the present case was already over and a charge sheet had been filed and, therefore, the applicant could be given relief.
