At, Supreme Court of India
By, THE HONOURABLE MR. JUSTICE MOHAN M. SHANTANAGOUDAR & THE HONOURABLE MR. JUSTICE R. SUBHASH REDDY
For the Petitioner: Arunabh Chowdhury, Advocate, Rahul Pratap, AOR. For the Respondent: Aman Lekhi, ASG, B. V. Balaram Das, AOR.
We do not find any ground to release the petitioner on bail pending appeal before the High Court. The Special Leave Petition is dismissed.
It is brought to our notice by the learned ASG that the appeal was posted for hearing in the month of February or March, 2020 but because of Covid-19 the hearing could not commence.
Be that as it may, we request the High Court to hear the Criminal Appeal finally on merits after the things are normalised.
We hope that the appeal will be decided as early as possible.
