Metropolitan Magistrate Dev Saroha said, “Despite interrogation, the investigating officer has failed to answer why there was such a rush to register the FIR even when he had not seen the video.” The judge said that while arresting the accused in the case, the investigating officer had violated the rules. The court also took note of the critical medical condition of the accused and the fact that he was admitted to the hospital after his arrest. The court also observed that the accused being a member of Bhima Sena is not a relevant fact while deciding the bail application as Bhim Sena is not a banned organisation.
Court granted bail on these conditions
“In view of these facts and circumstances, the accused Satpal Tanwar is entitled to be released on bail, provided he has the full co-operation of the Investigating Officer as and when he is fit for investigation,” the court said. The judge granted bail to the accused on a surety of Rs 50,000 and surety of like amount. The court directed the accused to appear before the investigating officer during the course of the investigation and on every date of hearing. The judge directed the accused not to leave the country without prior permission of the court.
