Court rejects bail plea of narco smuggler

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, July 11: Principal Sessions Judge Jammu Vinod Chatterji Koul has rejected the bail application of Kulwinder Singh, son of Balkar Singh of Ludhiana, who was arrested with 210 kilograms of poppy straw.
After hearing both the sides, Principal Sessions Judge observed, “it is settled law that in non bailable offences the accused cannot claim bail as a matter of right. Moreover, while dealing with the bail matters the court has to see whether the offence alleged against the accused is heinous in nature and severity of the punishment prescribed and other factors”.
With these observations, court rejected the bail application.
