New Delhi: The bail plea of Krishna, compounder of Dr Rajesh Talwar and an accused in the Noida double murder, was on Monday rejected by a Ghaziabad court while a petition is likely to be filed in the Allahabad High Court soon seeking the release of the dentist from judicial custody.

Special Magistrate Sapna Mishra rejected the petition of Krishna, saying the court was not empowered to take a decision on his bail.

“We have submitted before the court that Krishna was arrested under some false charges and hence he should be released. But the court said that it was not empowered to grant bail,” Krishna’s lawyer Fateh Chand Sharma said.

He said they were exploring other options, including moving to the District and Sessions Court, for his release.

Meanwhile, a petition is likely to be moved in the Allahabad High Court soon seeking release of Rajesh Talwar from judicial custody as his bail application was rejected by Ghaziabad District and Sessions Judge Narender Kumar Jain on June 26.

“We are contemplating to move the High Court,” Talwar’s counsel Satish Tamta said.- PTI
