JAMMU, July 19: Additional Sessions Judge Jammu Tahir Khurshid Raina today rejected the bail application of one Ranjeet Kumar Manyal, who along with other co-accused duped innocent youth in the name of providing Government jobs and issued 32 fake appointment orders in Forest Department in 2010.
After hearing Advocate Joginder Tulli for the applicant whereas CPO Rajesh Gill assisted by SHO Pacca Danga Sunil Sharma for the State, court observed, “in the instant case the accused have played with the sentiments of the educated un-employed youth who are moving from pillar to post for realisation of their dream of getting employed somewhere to make both ends meet “.
“In furtherance of that earnest desire and their obsession for employment, whenever they listen any voice of providing job, they rush towards that unmindful of the fact that the drum beater of providing jobs is a genuine or a fake person like the accused”, the court further observed, adding “it was only on account of efforts of the complainants in the case that the whereabouts of the accused got known and that too not as bonafide citizen residing in any part of the country but again came to be known as a criminal nabbed in the similar nature of offence committed in National Capital Delhi and lodged in Tihar Jail”.
“It is from that destined destination of criminals, accused custody has been transferred in the FIR registered at Pacca Danga Jammu wherein investigation is now going on and recovery of hard earned money of youth amounting to Rs 95 lakh has to be effected”, the court said, adding “the accused is neither assisting in recovery of the amount nor disclosing the whereabouts of co-accused from Kashmir”.
Keeping in view the fact that after committing the alleged criminal act in his native State which is under investigation, the applicant-accused absconded and finally found to be booked in another FIR in the same offence at Delhi, the court said, “the accused prima facie seems to be a repeated offender. If he will be back in the society, probably some more youth will be cheated”.
With these observations, court rejected the bail application.
