Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday
turned down the bail application of three persons, accused in
an eight-year-old murder case, for whom a similar relief was
cancelled by a lower court when they threatened a witness.
Justice Amar Saran rejected the petitions of Pintoo, Ajai
and Indar Dhobi who had also challenged a sessions court order
dated July 29, 2009, cancelling the bail granted in March
2002.

The petitioners were named in an FIR lodged at Saini
police station of Kaushambi district on 17.01. 2002, in
connection with the murder of one Suraj Pal.
Pal`s father Bhairo Prasad had deposed before the trial
court on November 21, 2008, with the submission that the three
accused, who were out on bail, had threatened him to change
his statement and said if he did not do so they will bump off
his other son as well.
