Saurav Kumar @ Laddu Yadav .... .... Petitioner/s Versus The State of Bihar .... .... Opposite Party/s ============================================= 4 17-10-2011 Heard learned counsel for the petitioner and learned counsel for the State.
Petitioner is alleged for committing rape upon the informant's daughter. In reaction thereof, she committed suicide by consuming poison. Submission of learned counsel for the petitioner is that there is no eye witness to the incident save and except informant and even witnesses are there to state that quarrel was appearing in informant's house from two or three days ago which could be reason for consuming the poison but number of witnesses is more to state that rape was committed by this petitioner either they saw petitioner fleeing or told by the informant. Charge-sheet if is submitted for the offence under Section 306 of the I.P.C. only does not minimize the gravity of the offence specifically when petitioner has criminal antecedent in several cases.
Taking the same into consideration, prayer of the petitioner for bail is rejected.
However, Trial Court is directed to expedite the trial. Shailendra Bh. Pd./- (Mandhata Singh, J.)
