Budgam, Nov 2: A local Court at Chadoora here rejected bail plea of a man accused of allegedly ‘abetting’ his wife to commit suicide at Namtehall village in Central Budgam.
Court of Judicial Magistrate Budgam, Molvi Abdul Bari according to news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO) rejected the bail application of an accused taking into consideration the gravity of the crime.
Pleading innocence, the accused through his counsel had moved bail application before the court of Judicial Magistrate Budgam, which was rejected after the Assistant Public Prosecutor (APP) representing Union Territory vehemently opposed the bail stating that the accused deserve no concession so far as the seriousness of the offense is concerned.
APP, Wajahat Jameel prayed that since investigation of the case is in progress, granting bail to the accused besides hampering investigation will have a negative impact on the society at large.
“Offence alleged is grave in nature and release of the accused at this stage is going to hamper the investigation, and a human life has been lost and if accused is released on bail it will have a negative impact on the society,” APP argued.
Arguing further in the matter, he said the accused may also give slip to the police in case he was granted bail as the investigation of the case is at initial stage.
The court after hearing arguments from defense as well as the prosecution counsel dismissed the bail plea of the accused considering seriousness of the offence.
“Keeping in view seriousness of the allegations against the accused, the punishment prescribed for the offenses and the large interest of society as a whole, this court is not inclined to enlarge the accused on bail,” reads the order passed by the court in particular matter.
Pertinent to mention that the man from Namtehall village of Chadoora, Budgam was charged under FIR No. 159/2020 of Police station Chadoora under section 306 of IPC for abetting his wife to commit suicide.
