New Delhi: The Supreme court has declined a plea by the mother of late actress Pratyusha Banerjee seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail of Rahul Raj Singh.
Rahul was accused of abetment to suicide of the “Balika Vadhu” star.
The bench comprising Justice PC Ghosh and Justice Amitava Roy, dismissed the plea by Soma Banerjee as withdrawn. The bench did not accept that he should be charged for murder.
When the court was urged that only custodial interrogation can establish the charge of murder, the bench was not impressed by the plea. The court asked if Maharashtra police has filed any application challenging the grant of anticipatory bail.
The court dismissed the plea by Soma Banerjee as the bench was told by her council that the Maharashtra police has not moved any application contesting grant of anticipatory bail to Rahul Raj Singh by the state High Court.
