Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Sept 26: High Court has rejected the bail application of alleged notorious thief namely Mumtaz Ali and his associates.

While rejecting the bail application, Justice Tashi Rabstan observed, “the applicants have committed offences, which are non-bailable and punishable up to life imprisonment”, adding “the offences are very grievous and their involvement has been shown in number of FIRs including the present once”.

“Since the petitioner had already preferred a bail application before the Sessions Judge, Poonch, which came to be dismissed by a detailed order dated August 20, 2015, therefore this court don’t find any good ground to bail out the accused now at this stage in absence of any new or fresh grounds”, Justice Rabstan said.

“No-doubt, the counsel for the petitioner has raised many issues on facts and low but the same relate to the merits of the prosecution case and its admissibility in law, which cannot be dealt with in detail at this stage”, the court said.

With these observations, High Court dismissed the application.
