The Delhi High Court has allowed bail to a person accused of making obscene videos and allegedly blackmailing a woman into physical relations with him.
A single-judge bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait said, “A perusal of status report filed by respondent/State shows that so far prosecution has not been able to procure any technical evidence in this regard.”
The bail application has been filed by Mohit Aggarwal who has been accused of making obscene videos, blackmailing and raping the prosecutrix for several months.
The bench noted, “There is no iota of doubt that the allegations levelled against the petitioner are serious in nature.”
However, the bench further observed, “Allegedly, there are allegations of petitioner repeatedly raping her till she returned to her home in Delhi in 2017. But the fact remains that no complaint/ PCR call was made nor any FIR was registered by the prosecutrix in Mohali with respect to alleged incident nor did she think of returning her home in Delhi from September, 2016 till April, 2017.”
Without commenting on the merits of the case, the bench allowed the bail application upon furnishing of a personal bail bond of Rs 25,000.
