Panchkula: Rejecting the anticipatory bail plea of SPS Rathore in Ruchika molestation case, a local court today said the former Haryana DGP was not entitled for the concession since allegations levelled against him in both the FIRs were specific and cast a spine-chilling and hair raising impact.

"The applicant-accused cannot be entitled to the concession of anticipatory bail, especially in the circumstances when specific allegations in categorical terms have been levelled in both the FIRs," Additional District and Sessions Judge Sanjiv Jindal said in his order.

The two FIRs disclose the "alleged commission of the non-bailable offences on his (Rathore) party, which not only prick the conscience of common man, but also cast a spine-chilling and hair raising impact on one's psyche, he said.

He said the complainants (Ruchika's father Subhash Chander Girhotra and brother Ashu) were subjected to "inhuman torture" at the behest of the applicant-accused on account of his alleged political clout and high official position in the official machinery of the state.

Ruchika's father Subhash Chander Girhotra and his son Ashu had filed two complaints against Rathore and others in connection with the post mortem proceedings and booking of her brother in false cases demanding registration of fresh FIRs.

67-year-old Rathore and ASI Sewa Singh had moved the applications seeking anticipatory bail following the registration of the two FIRs on December 29.
