Allahabad HC Grants interim bail to Gayatri Prajapati
The Allahabad HC has granted two months’ interim bail to former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati on medical grounds. Prajapati has been held and is on trial in connection with a gang rape.
Justice Ved Prakash Vaish passed an order on the second bail application moved on Prajapati’s behalf. Granting bail, the court said the threat to the ex-minister from COVID-19 was imminent.
He along with others is accused of raping a woman and attempting to molest her minor daughter. The court directed him to surrender before the trial court or jail superintendent after the expiry of two months bail.
While granting bail, the court imposed various conditions on him and directed him not to threaten the prosecutrix and her family, and not to coerce prosecution witnesses.
