Trial of Dawood`s frontman cleared

New Delhi: A Delhi court has given the green
signal for prosecution of gangster Romesh Sharma, serving life
term for murdering his girlfriend, for allegedly getting the
expletive `kamina` (rascal) branded on the back of his fellow
prisoner by two jail officials using a mosquito coil.

Additional Sessions Judge Narinder Kumar paved the way for
prosecution of Sharma, the alleged frontman of fugitive
underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, upholding a magisterial court
summons to him face trial along with Rohini Jail
Superintendent S M Bhardwaj and Assistant Superintendent.
The trio had been summoned by city`s additional chief
metropolitan magistrate (ACMM) in November 2010 on a complaint
by another murder convict Satpal Bedi that the two jailers got
the word `kamina` branded on his back with a burning
mosquito coil at Sharma`s behest.
The sessions court upheld the summons to the trio,
dismissing their pleas against the magisterial court order.

"This court does not find any illegality or irregularity
in the (ACMM`s) impugned order," the ASJ said dismissing their
pleas.

The trio had moved the court against ACMM`s order
summoning them as accused to face trial for inflicting burn
injuries on Bedi after wrongfully confining him under threat.
