Dawood`s alleged aide refused bail in 2009 extortion case

Khalil Ahmed, an alleged aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was on Monday refused bail by a Delhi court.



New Delhi: Khalil Ahmed, an alleged aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was on Monday refused bail by a Delhi court in a 2009 case of alleged attempt to extort money from a businessman here.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav denied bail to Ahmed.

Khalil had sought bail on the ground that the Indian Penal Code provides a maximum punishment of seven years for the offence of extortion and he has spent a substantial period in judicial custody, pending trial.

His counsel also said argued all the prosecution witnesses in the case have already been examined and there is no likelihood of Ahmed threatening any witness.

The court, however, noted the argument of the prosecution that Khalil was not given bail in December, 2011, by a sessions court which had considered the merits of the case, his conduct and the societal impact that is going to be caused if he is granted bail.

"I find substance in arguments of the prosecution that although the accused has undergone substantial sentence as an undertrial, his bail was dismissed by the sessions court on merits," the CMM said.
