Itanagar: The Itanagar bench of Gauhati High Court on Thursday rejected the bail petition of former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Gegong Apang in the multi-crore PDS scam case.

This is for the fifth time the High Court rejected Apang's bail plea while the same was rejected four times by the special session court in Assam's Lakhimpur district.

Justice H N Sharma rejected the bail plea on the ground that more incriminating evidences were found against Apang in the scam, Special Investigating Cell (SIC) head M S Chauhan informed.

The judge, however, said that Apang could move his bail plea in a larger bench of the court.

The session court on September 27 last rejected Apang's bail petition and remanded him to judicial custody till October 11.

Apang was arrested on August 24 by the SIC for his alleged involvement in the scam. He was first remanded to police custody for 14 days and later to judicial custody.

Apang is presently lodged in the Rama Krishna Mission Hospital in Itanagar with complaints of hyper tension and diabetes.
