The Bombay High Court Wednesday rejected the bail plea of Deputy Superintendent of Police M L Parmar, one of the accused in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case and the subsequent killing of his wife Kausarbi.
Along with Parmar, co-accused — DySP Narendra Amin and police Inspector Balkrishna Rajendra Prasad — had also moved the court seeking bail in the same case.
Justice A M Thipsay, while rejecting Parmar's bail, called for Amin's medical report and kept his bail petition for pronouncement of order after a week. The court has also directed that the trial in a Mumbai court should be completed within a year.
Counsel Mahesh Jethmalani, appearing for Amin, argued that apart from other contentions concerning the merits of the case, the court should also take into account the health of of the accused, who is admitted to a hospital in Ahmedabad.
Advocate Amit Nair, appearing for Parmar, submitted that his client has been in jail for more than five years. Nair said Parmar was not even part of the encounter team or while cremating the body.
The HC will start hearing the bail petitions filed by four other police officers from February 25.
