Muzaffarnagar: A local court rejected the
bail plea of one of the seven persons allegedly involved in
abducting and attempting to rape two Delhi girls, statement of
one of whom was on Tuesday recorded seven days after the alleged
incident.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Vikas Goel
turned down the plea of Mashroof, one of the seven arrested
for the June 21 incident near Vehalna Chowk on Delhi-Dehradun
highway in the district, saying the charges against him were
non-bailable.

He has been charged with attempt to rape, loot,
assault and other offences.

One of the victims and the complainant Gaurav Jain
were produced in the court today where their statement was
recorded by additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Jyotsna
Singh.
Seven persons, including two relative of BSP MP Kadir
Rana and two personnel security officer of BSP MLA Shahnawaz
Rana, have been arrested in connection with the attempted rape
of the two girls, which allegedly took place when they were
returning to Delhi from Mussoorie along with their two male
friends.

Shahnawaz was suspended by BSP supremo Maaywati after
the incident.

They stopped at a petrol pump to get their vehicle
repaired where a group of seven-eight youths abducted them in
a car and took them to a nearby house to rape them at gun
point. However, the girls managed to escape.

Nasir Ali, Mashroof`s lawyer, said that he would file
a bail application in the Sessions Court tomorrow on behalf of
his client.
