BENGALURU: A Deputy Commandant at the Border Security Force, Subsidiary Training Centre in Yelahanka, who allegedly assaulted a BSF constable with footwear and threatened him with his gun, has been granted anticipatory bail by a sessions court.
Kotrayya M Hiremath, a City Civil and Sessions Judge, recently allowed the anticipatory bail plea of Parasmal Jeenger.
According to the complaint lodged at Yelahanka police station by BSF officer Abhimanyu K R Singh, Bishwanath Das worked as a BSF constable under Parasmal Jeenger. On September 10, Jeenger entrusted some of his personal work to Das. Das went to Jeenger’s house the next day.
Jeenger allegedly assaulted Das who fell down due to the impact of the blow. Jeenger continued to attack Das and assaulted him with slippers. Jeenger then called his daughter and asked her to depose before senior officers that Das had held her hands and said “I love you”.
Further, Jeenger assaulted Das with a stone and he fell unconscious. After regaining consciousness, Jeenger threatened Das with his civil gun and told him not to disclose about the incident.
Das underwent treatment for his injuries at the BSF Hospital and then at Victoria Hospital. He filed a complaint with his senior officer Abhimanyu K R Singh.
Apprehending his arrest by Yelahanka police, Jeenger approached the court for anticipatory bail. He claimed he was innocent.
However, the public prosecutor opposed granting him relief. Yelahanka police have registered a case under various provisions of IPC and also under the Arms Act against Jeenger and investigation is in progress.
The condition imposed while granting anticipatory bail are that Jeenger shall appear before the investigating officer within 25 days and he shall be released on bail by obtaining personal bond for a sum of `50,000 with one surety for the like sum. He shall not make any inducement, threat to witnesses and cooperate for the investigation by appearing before the investigating officer.
