CBI court rejects bail plea of accused cop N K Amin in Ishrat Jahan case

A special court here on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of suspended deputy superintendent of police N K Amin, in which he had contended that the chargesheet filed by the CBI in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case was incomplete.

Additional chief judicial magistrate S H Khutwad of the special CBI court rejected the application, saying that the applicant had filed default bail plea withing 90 days whereas, according to section 167 (2) of CrPC, the default bail plea has to be filed after 90 days and that too, in case the chargesheet is not filed. But, in this case, the chargesheet has been filed within 90 days. So the argument that the filed chargesheet was incomplete does not survive, the court observed. Amin, who was arrested in the 2004 fake encounter case of Ishrat and three others on April 4, had filed a bail application on July 4, saying that as CBI filed an incomplete chargesheet, he should be given bail. CBI filed the chargesheet against seven police officers, including Amin, accusing them of murder and criminal conspiracy.
