Ganderbal court rejects anticipatory bail to alleged fraudster


Principal district and sessions judge Ganderbal, Raja Shujaat Ali Khan, rejected anticipatory bail application of an outside state person alleged to have duped a man from Kangan.
According to police a complaint was lodged by one Mir Mushtaq Ahmed son of Ghulam Ahmed of Satruna Kangan alleging that he had received a phone call from the accused, a resident of Okhla, New Delhi, asking him to transfer an amount of Rs 1 lakh which he did on the promise that he would get “benefit of a mobile tower at his home.” Following which a case was registered and investigation taken up. 
While hearing both the sides, the court observed the report sought from police reveals that the petitioner who is seeking pre-arrest bail under section 497-A Cr.PC is involved in the commission of offence punishable under sections 420, 467,468,120-B RPC read with 66 I.T. Act arising out of FIR number 85 of 2015 at police station Kangan. 
The accused is from outside the state allegedly running a fraud company and has been escaping his arrest since the registration of FIR.  “He has cheated the complainant and received an amount of Rs 1 lakh from him.
Public prosecutor Tanveer Ahmed resisted the bail application on the ground that the accused has committed very heinous and non-bailable offence which is not only against the individual but also against the society.
“The investigation of the case is in progress. Therefore, the accused-petitioner is not entitled to the liberty of bail,” with these observations the Court rejected the bail application.
