Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court today issued a show cause notice to the father of Ruchika Girhotra for whose molestation former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore has been convicted, for not appearing before the court in connection with an over 25-year-old graft case in which he had been granted bail.

Issuing the show cause notice, Justice T P S Mann of Punjab and Haryana High Court sought an explanation from the girl's father S C Girhotra as to why the bail granted to him in December 1994 in the case should not be cancelled as neither he nor someone on his behalf appeared before the court despite two notices issued by it in this regard.

Booked by the CBI in a case of corruption in the year 1983-84, Girhotra had been sentenced to one year imprisonment by a Special CBI court of Patiala on November 15, 1994 but granted bail on December 16 the same year.

Girhotra had been found guilty of sanctioning loan to a non-existent company while he was the manager of United Commercial Bank in Naya Gaon in Punjab near Chandigarh.

Recently when the HC decided to take up some old cases, Girhotra’s case came up for hearing but no one appeared on his behalf before the court.
