High court dismisses bail plea of accused in rape case

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has recalled the pre-arrest bail of a man and dismissed his bail application in a rape case.

Applicant Arshan had filed an application for obtaining bail in the rape case registered against him at the Korangi Industrial Area police station. According to the prosecution, the applicant had raped a woman after the false promise of marrying her, but he later refused to fulfil his promise.

The applicant’s counsel said his client was willing to marry the woman, and had also filed a suit for the restoration of conjugal rights in the family court. The complainant’s counsel said the applicant was a deceiver who had committed a heinous crime, and requested the court to dismiss the bail application.

The counsel said the applicant had promised to marry the victim, but he refused to do so at the last moment while married to another woman. A single SHC bench headed by Justice Adnanul Karim Memon said bail before arrest is meant to protect innocent citizens involved in heinous crimes without any mala fide intentions.

The court said that no grounds exist in the applicant’s favour to show that he was booked in the case with mala fide intention. The bench said that no case of bail is made out, recalling the interim pre-arrest bail granted to the applicant and dismissing the bail.
