The accused, who are drug peddlers used to supply drugs to various drugs customers including the deceased. Later, because of de-addiction of deceased, the accused had not only lost a customer but were apprehending their exposure at the hands of deceased and in furtherance of conspiracy accused injected heavy dose of heroin in the body of deceased, as a result of which she died.
Justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta after hearing Government Advocate Sanjeev Padha appearing for the State observed that prosecution has based its case on direct as well as circumstantial evidence and in case any link in chain is snapped then whole case can become doubtful. The grounds taken in the petition and arguments advanced by counsel for petitioner may be good grounds for acquittal but not for granting bail.
Further once an accused is charge sheeted under offence, which carries capital punishment, then there is less chance of bail in mid trial stage, unless Court comes to the conclusion that there are reasonable grounds to believe that accused has not committed any offence. With these observations, Court dismissed the application.
