One accused in Jahangirpuri violence case gets interim bail on medical grounds


Delhi’s Rohini Court on Tuesday granted seven days of interim bail to an accused in the Jahangirpuri violence case in view of a serious medical condition. The accused was earlier declared a Proclaimed Offender after he absconded. He was later arrested on 2 August.

The case is connected with the violence between two groups in the Jahangirpuri area during a procession on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti on 16 April 2022. A charge sheet has already been filed against the other accused in the matter.

Additional Sessions Judge Smita Garg granted bail to Akbar alias Sanwar on medical grounds after considering the medical report filed by the jail authorities.

The court said that considering the medical condition of the applicant and taking note of the fact that he could be arrested only after he was declared proclaimed offender on 22 July 2022, the applicant is granted interim bail from 7 September to 13 September 2022, subject to furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs 30,000 with two sureties each.

Out of the two sureties, one surety should be an immediate family member of the applicant.
