Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Sept 5: In the much publicized attack on Kashmir based truck in Udhampur, High Court has rejected the bail application of one of the accused namely Jasbir Singh.
After hearing Senior Advocate PN Raina with Advocate JA Hamal for the applicant whereas Government Advocate Sanjeev Padha for the State, Justice Sanjay Kumar observed, “law is clear that detail appreciation of evidence cannot be done at the time of considering the bail in heinous offence. It is not a case that there is nothing incriminating spoken by witnesses examined so far”.
“The certain contradiction, embellishment and improvement which have been brought to the knowledge of court, may be good grounds for acquittal, but not for granting bail. Further in case at this stage any finding is given on contradiction, embellishment and improvement of witnesses made during trial that may prejudice court below in passing final judgment”, High Court said.
With these observations, court rejected the bail application.
