According to Crime Branch, petitioner assured complainant for arranging admission of his son in MD course at ASCOMS Sidhra for sessions 2016, for which he demanded an amount of Rs 1,30,00,000; that complainant paid said amount to petitioner; that petitioner failed to fulfill his promise and thereby cheated complainant with dishonest, malafide and fraudulent intention; that petitioner resultantly, is involved in FIR No. 10 of 2021 for offences under sections 420/120-B of RPC; that offences committed by petitioner are anti-social, heinous and non-bailable in nature; that petitioner is also involved in another FIR No. 18 of 2020 for offence under section 420 of IPC registered with Police Station Kothi Bagh, Srinagar. “As investigation of the case is at preliminary stage and release of petitioner on bail at this stage would impede the same, grant of bail to petitioner will encourage him to re-indulge in similar activities etc. Ultimately, rejection of this application has been solicited,” the Court observed.

While rejecting the bail application, CJM Jammu further observed that it is also needs to be pointed out that revelations in the investigation only underline that investigating agency sets its energy more stringently on expediting the investigation by focusing on such vital aspects which have till date been glaringly left un-adhered and directed that copy of this order shall go to SSP Crime Branch, Jammu for information and necessary action in light of observations made above.
