Bhanwari case: Bail plea of key accused rejected
Jodhpur: A local court on Wednesday dismissed the petition of Bhanwari Devi abduction-cum-murder case accused Shahabuddin, who sought an interim bail for a month to attend his son`s marriage.
While rejecting Shahabuddin`s plea for interim bail, Judicial Magistrate Anoop Kumar Saxena, however, allowed him to attend his son`s wedding ceremony tomorrow for three hours.
According to the court orders, he will leave the jail at 11.00 AM and return by 2.00 PM amid tight security.
Shahabuddin, who sought interim bail in the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (SC/ST cases) court, is the second accused to have sought interim bail.
Earlier, Paras Ram Bishnoi had moved a similar plea before the court, the decision on which will be given on May 2.
CBI Special Public Prosecutor Ashok Joshi objected to the bail and argued that it was completely irrational to seek one month bail for the marriage.
The ACJM court is expected to begin the trial of all the 17 accused of the case on May 2.
Out of the total 17 accused in the case, 16 including ruling Congress party MLAs Mahipal Maderna and Malkhan Bishnoi, are under judicial custody while Indira is absconding.
36-year-old Bhanwari Devi was abducted and murdered last year.
