BENGALURU: Two of the accused in a gang-ape case which was reported in Frazer Town have been granted bail. It is said that the court granted them bail as the charges framed against them were not strong.
Among the five accused, accused No 3 Shoaib Sheikh Mohammed and accused No 4 Mohammed Hafeez were granted bail by a magistrate court recently.
A senior police official said that the chargesheet had already been filed after complete investigation and it was left to the court whether to grant bail or not.
“The court is also ensuring the case has a speedy-trial. The chargesheet includes the confessions of both the accused who were granted bail. Once the hearing is complete, there is all possibility they will be convicted, based on their role in the crime,” he added.
According to sources, the police, who had filed the chargesheet in September , had framed them of just ‘assisting’ the prime accused. Another accused Mohammed Ishaq Sawood, who was driving the car when the incident took place, was also granted bail and released earlier.
