Gangrape: HC rejects bus owner`s bail plea in cheating case
New Delhi: Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed the bail plea of Dinesh Yadav, owner of the bus in which the horrific December 16 gangrape incident took place, in a case of cheating and forgery for allegedly submitting false information to get transport permit.
Justice Mukta Gupta accepted the prosecution argument that the investigation in a preliminary stage and turned down Yadav`s plea, saying "no interference is required into the order of trial court."
Challenging the trial court`s March 12 order dismissing his bail petition, Yadav, 35, in his plea claimed he was in no way connected to the incident.
Yadav, arrested since January 2, sought bail on the grounds of parity saying co-accused Rakam Singh has already been granted bail in the case.
Police had registered a case of cheating and forgery under various sections of IPC against Yadav. They said he had submitted false information to the State Transport Department to get the registration certificate and the permit for the bus.
The 23-year-old girl was gangraped in the moving bus in south Delhi and died in a hospital in Singapore on December 29.
