Mumbai: The sessions court on Friday rejected
the anticipatory bail plea of a 28-year-old man, accused of
raping a 12-year-old girl continuously for two years, after
observing that it was a serious offence.

accused needs to be interrogated by the police," additional
sessions Judge P H Mali remarked while rejecting the bail
plea.

The accused, Gyan Prasad Sharma has been along with
eight other men including a 70-year-old man accused of raping
a 12-year-old girl for over two years at suburban Saki Naka,
where she was staying with her maternal aunt.

remaining four.
