Bail has been granted by the Delhi High court to a man who was allegedly framed in a criminal case for objecting to eve-teasing by a person in his locality.
A bench of Justice G P Mittal granted bail to Delhi resident Rajkumar accused of attempting to kill and illegally restraining one of the men residing in his locality.
The high court freed Rajkumar on bail subject to his furnishing a personal bond of Rs 25,000.
Rajkumar, in his bail plea filed through advocate Sugriva Dubey, had said the complainant, who filed the case against him, was a “tout of the police” and used to “tease” girls passing in front of his home.
When Rajkumar objected to the eve-teasing, the complainant and his friends dragged him into the house of the complainant, according to the lawyer.
During the scuffle, the complainant was injured by a brick which incidentally fell on his head, mentioned in the bail plea.
Rajkumar also alleged that as the injured man had connections with the police, a case of attempt to culpable homicide and illegal restraint under the IPC was registered against him.
As a consequence, he was arrested on November 3 last year, mentioned in the application.
