Man accused of selling wife to friend in Delhi
New Delhi: The city police Friday opposed the anticipatory bail plea of a man, accused of selling his wife to another man who allegedly raped her, before the Delhi High Court claiming that it has evidence against him and he is not entitled to bail.
Filing a status report before a vacation bench of Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva, Public Prosecutor Navin Sharma submitted that during the preliminary investigation, the rape accused has disclosed that he had paid money for the woman and the husband had received the amount saying that the woman is a divorcee.
The lawyer also argued the allegations are serious against the man(husband) and the court should not grant bail to him.
After taking the police status report on record, Justice Sachdeva adjourned the matter for July 2 and said "till then no interim relief to the petitioner."
The court was hearing the husband`s plea which challenged the lower court`s order rejecting his plea for anticipatory bail in a case of rape, illegal confinement and criminal intimidation.
The case was lodged by the wife against the man, to whom she was allegedly sold, and her husband and in-laws for their alleged role in it.
The FIR was registered with Hari Nagar police station by the woman against the man who raped her and also the husband for the alleged conspiracy as they were not on good terms for the past several months.
The petitioner`s counsel contended the woman was misusing the police and law.
