According to the police report, on May 15, 2019 ASI Mohammad Akram Incharge Police Station Bagh-e-Bahu along with other police personnel were on patrolling at Mahamaya area and had laid Naka at Environment Park NHW and were checking the vehicles coming from Srinagar. During checking a truck bearing No PB65K-1613 was signaled to stop but the driver of the truck tried to escape and the truck in question was stopped. There were two occupants in the truck. On enquiry, the driver disclosed his name as Dalbir Singh and the other person disclosed his name as Kulvinder Singh. During checking of the truck, one kilogram Bhukki was found in 210 bags each wrapped in a polythene bag below the plywood. After hearing both the sides, the court observed that it is settled law that in non-bailable offences the accused cannot claim bail as a matter of right. “Moreover, while dealing with the bail matters, the court has to see whether the offence alleged against the accused is heinous in nature, severity of the punishment prescribed and other factors. Court has to maintain the balance between individual interest of the accused person and interest of the society at large”, the court observed. With these observations, court rejected the bail application.
