STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Principal Sessions Judge Reasi Kamlesh Pandita on Wednesday rejected the bail application of one Hem Raj, resident of District Reasi who was allegedly involved in rape with minor. The court observed that objections to this bail application have been filed by the prosecution in which it has been pleaded that the prosecutrix on whom accused committed heinous crime is a minor of 13 years as per the report of the dentist. “The prosecutrix because of the heinous act of the accused got pregnant and delivered a baby later on and there is nothing on record to show that the accused had made honest promise to the prosecutrix to solemnize the marriage with her and the fact is that accused was already married and has also children. It has been further pleaded that evidence on record is substantial against the accused person for his connection with the commission of the offence committed by him and the accused person does not deserve to be bailed out”, the court observed adding that allegation against the accused is that he by deceitful means called the prosecutrix to his residence and committed rape on her and was threatening her not to disclose the incident to anyone. “The accused person stands already charge-sheeted for the commission of offences under Sections 376 and 506 of RPC. From the record available it appears that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accusation against the accused are prima facie true and thus attracts statutory bar under Section 497- C Cr.P.C. Therefore, without going into the merits of the case, the accused person/applicant herein has failed to convince this court for his admission to bail”, the court observed and accordingly dismissed the bail application.
