High Court order on Aman Kachroo case accused likely on Wednesday

Shimla: Hearing the suo motu petition of the cancellation of bail granted to four accused in the Aman Kachroo ragging case, Himachal High Court decided to deliver it’s order on Wednesday.

Justice DD Sud decided to deliver the order Wednesday after hearing both the parties for more than four hours in the open court.

Counsel for the accused argued that Kachroo could have died due to some heart disease and not injuries related to ragging.
Justifying the bail granted to the accused by the trial court, they said the accused were granted bail after the recording of the statement of most of the witnesses.

“Statement of 26 witnesses has been recorded so far and now only the statements of some doctors and police personnel are to be recorded. Moreover, they are not likely to be influenced by the accused,” said a defence counsel.

Contesting their contentions, Advocate General RK Bawa said the post-mortem report of Kachroo conducted by a team of the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital (in Shimla) ruled out the possibility of any heart disease.

Since the accused – Naveen, Abhinav and Mukul – have already been facing cases related to rioting, criminal intimidation and trespassing, the order of bail suffers from judicial impropriety and illegality, he said.

The statements recorded so far have clearly linked Kachroo’s death to ragging, Bawa added.

The high court in its hearing Saturday restrained the trial court from passing any order related to bail given to the four students.
