Court rejects bail of Heroine Smuggler


Jammu, May 6: Principal Sessions Judge Reasi Kamlesh Pandit rejected the bail application of one Rakesh Kumar /O Birbal R/O Aggar Jitto Tehsil Katra District Reasi who was arrested by the police for selling Heroine.
Police report and the objections were sought. Police report reveals that police caught hold the accused Rakesh Kumar on the basis of information received from Pawan Kumar another accused, which was caught hold by police at Asia Chowk Katra with 27 grams of Heroin (Chitta).
On the basis of the information and during search of the accused namely Rakesh Kumar/ applicant herein 16 grams of Heroin (Chitta) was recovered from his possession. Principal Sessions Judge Reasi Kamlesh Pandit after hearing both the sides observed that drug menace is burgeoning with pace and its perpetuators are designing every day a new mode to introduce it to younger generation. The adverse effect of such drugs is dependence syndrome, psychological and mental disorder followed by symptoms of stress or disorder. The offence committed by the accused has deleterious effect on the public at large and courts have to act strictly in view of the virulent progression of such crimes.
Though the right to Liberty is a fundamental right and the citizens are free to move anywhere in the country but presently reasonable restrictions have been imposed to prevent the spread of corona virus and the medical experts have impressed upon social distancing and in such circumstances release of accused/applicant herein at the cost of breaching the order of lock-down and at the cost of risking lives of many cannot be considered to fall within the category of extreme urgent matter. With these observations Court rejected the bail application. JNF
