The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the bail petition of former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati, who alongwith six others, has been accused of allegedly gangraping a woman and attempting to molest her minor daughter, news agency ANI reported.
Seeking dismissal of Prajapati’s bail plea, the Uttar Pradesh government had last month told the apex court that a prima facie case was made out against the SP leader. This was conveyed to a bench of Justice A K Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan in an affidavit filed by the state in response to Prajapati’s plea for bail in the case.
The government had said the trial court had framed charges against various accused, including Prajapati, and the trial was in progress. “As a result of investigation, on the basis of the statements of the informant/complainant, the statement of witnesses and the site inspection of the incident, it was concluded that a prima facie case is made out against the accused petitioner Gayatri Prasad Prajapati and others…,” the affidavit said.
