Independent Journalist Mandeep Punia, who was captured by Delhi Police on Saturday for supposedly impeding police from carrying out their responsibility and making hurt police staff at Singhu line, was allowed bail by a Delhi court Tuesday.
In the request, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (Rohini court) Satvir Singh Lamba said, “It is claimed that the blamed had pushed Ct. (constable) Rajkumar towards the fighting spot, in this manner, the police called the insignificant power to control the circumstance. From that point, the nonconformists disappeared… and the denounced/candidate fell in the channel, whereupon he was overwhelmed and captured.”
Giving bail to Punia on an obligation of Rs 25,000, the request expressed: “It is appropriate to make reference to here that the supposed fight episode of present case is of around 6.30 pm. Be that as it may, the current FIR was enrolled at around 1.21 am on the following day. In addition, the complainant, casualties and witnesses are police staff as it were. Thus, there is no likelihood that charged/candidate can… impact any of the police authorities.”
The court additionally said that no recuperation is to be affected from the denounced individual and keeping the charged further in Judicial Custody would not serve any “relevant reason”.
“It is all around settled lawful guideline of law that ‘bail is a standard and prison is an exemption’,” the request conceding him bail said.
Contradicting the bail application, the public investigator had said that Punia “may again enjoy inducing the protestors and may make disturbance at the dissent site with the gathering of various individuals and may hamper the examination”.
