'Approver can't get bail till trial is over': Court refuses bail to dismissed Mumbai cop Sachin Waze
Waze recently turned an approver (or prosecution witness) and was granted pardon in a case in which former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh is the main accused.
Waze, in his plea filed through advocate Raunak Naik, said no final report has been filed against him and hence, he is entitled to default bail under relevant provisions of the CrPC.
Singh also alleged that he was pressured into reinstating suspended police officer Sachin Waze in the police force by CM Uddhav Thackeray and home minister Anil Deshmukh.
The move comes a day after a special court in Mumbai allowed a plea of dismissed police officer Sachin Waze to turn an approver and seek pardon in the case.
