After hearing both the sides, Additional Sessions Judge observed, “the court has to keep in mind the nature and seriousness of the offences, character of evidence, circumstances which are peculiar to the accused, reasonable possibility of the presence of the accused not being secured at the trial, reasonable apprehension of the witnesses being tempered with and above all, larger interest of the public or the State and other similar factors which may be relevant in the facts and circumstances of each case”.
“There is no evidence to the effect which can make this court to opine that the accused/applicant is not prima facie involved in this case and the story projected by the prosecution is not true”, Additional Sessions Judge said.
With these observations, court rejected the bail application.
