Court after hearing Adv ZN Sheikh for the applicant whereas APP Anoop Kumar for the ACB, observed that allegations leveled against the accused are heinous and grave, he was caught red handed on 02-03-2023 in presence of independent witnesses while accepting bribe of Rs.4000/- from the complainant inside the premises of Police Post Chinore Jammu which was recovered from the possession of accused public servant. Since investigation is still under way, it may not be proper for this court to frame an opinion at this stage as to whether the case of the prosecution is false or baseless. Until the final police report is made available, it cannot be said that allegations leveled against the accused are prima-facie untrue. For the foregoing reasons, at this stage petitioner has not made out a case for his enlargement on bail, therefore, bail application is dismissed. JNF
