JAMMU: Special Mobile Magistrate Passanger Tax, Sandeep Gandotra rejected bail application of Kulbir Singh, son of Sansar Singh, resident of Khour Bhau, Tehsil R S Pura District Jammu, Prop of K K Motors on Friday, who was arrested by Crime Branch Jammu for duping a woman of Rs 23.50 lakh.As per details, a written complaint was lodged in Crime Branch Jammu by complainant wherein it was alleged that in 2017, she approached the dealer (accused) for purchasing a JCB and for that purpose, applied for loan in J&K Bank, Branch Kullian, R S Pura, Jammu. The cost of JCB was Rs 23,50,000, for which she was required to pay margin money of Rs 8,50,000 to dealer while for remaining Rs 15 lakh, the complainant sought loan from Bank. The complainant was under the impression that aforesaid Bank would transfer the amount in the account of firm and the complainant would get delivery of JCB. But after repeatedly requesting the dealer for delivery of JCB, the accused refused to give the delivery of JCB and told her that aforesaid J&K Bank has not sanctioned the loan and has not transferred any amount in account of the firm for JCB, while deductions on account of repayment of the loan had already taken from account of her husband. The accused neither handed over possession of JCB to complainant nor returned back money to her.On this, preliminary verification was initiated by Crime Branch Jammu and the allegations against accused were prima facie substantiated which led to registration of instant case for in-depth investigation.Special Mobile Magistrate Passanger Tax Sandeep Gandotra after hearing APP Riyaz Ahmed for the UT observed that court in such case, cannot pass a blanket order of bail because court cannot go beyond the statutory command of law, moreso when the faith of general public is involved. “Enlargement of accused on bail at this stage would scuttle investigation because the money has yet not been recovered and co-accused Narotam Singh is still absconding. Even otherwise the grant of bail at this stage would not be in public interest, which is a paramount consideration. Keeping in view the nature of allegations, character of evidence collected by IO, stage of investigation, the fact that co-accused is absconding, the fact that money has not been recovered and involvement of public interest, this court is of the humble opinion that discretion of bail in favour of accused cannot be exercised,” he observed.
