Uttar Pradesh govt to move HC for cancellation of Prajapatis bail
The Uttar Pradesh government will move the Allahabad High Court to seek cancellation of the bail granted to former minister Gayatri Prajapati by a special court in a rape case, a top law officer said on Thursday.

"The government is currently examining all relevant papers before challenging the bail order given by a Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) court in the case," Advocate General Raghavendra Singh said here.

rnment is currently examining all relevant papers before challenging the bail order given by a Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) court in the case," Advocate General Raghavendra Singh said here.

Prajapati and two of his alleged accomplices were on Tuesday granted bail by special judge of POCSO court Om Prakash Mishra here in connection with the rape case.

However, his reprieve proved to be shortlived as a local court yesterday remanded him in judicial custody in two separate cases even before he could walk out of jail.

Prajapati was sent back to Gosainganj prison here after getting bail in the rape case the previous day.

The city police dug out old cases and convinced the court of chief judicial magistrate to send Prajapati back to judicial custody.

They produced case diaries of two FIRs registered at Gautampalli and Gomtinagar police stations here against Prajapati in order to convince the court that letting him out on bail can jeopardise the ongoing investigations in the two criminal cases.
