STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: Principal Sessions Judge Reasi Kamlesh Pandita on Monday rejected the bail application of Joginder Kumar, who is allegedly involved in case under POCSO Act. According to police case, mother of the prosecutrix lodged a written complaint with the concerned police station with the aid of the Child Welfare Committee that on July 19, 2019 at about 9:00 AM when she had gone to collect wood from the forest and her husband was also out of home for labour work, the accused in their absence forcibly entered the residence of the complainant where her minor daughter was sitting alone and the accused tried to abuse and outrage her modesty. Subsequently, concerned police registered a case against the accused under FIR No.152/2019 under Sections 354 and 452 RPC read with 8 POCSO Act. After hearing both the sides, the court observed that the charge-sheet in the case has already been filed from which it appears that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accusations against the accused person are prima facie true, therefore, accused does not deserve to be bailed out. “Moreover, the accused person has tried to outrage the modesty of a minor girl who also happens to be his close relative. The new legislation has been enacted with an object to deal with an iron fist on the offenders due to the ever increasing intensity of incidents of sexual violence against the children/minors. It is also duty upon the courts to fill the link with the objectives of the new legislation called POCSO, therefore, in the facts and circumstances of the case and in view of the above detailed reasons, the bail application filed by the accused person is rejected”, the court held.
