New Delhi, January 7
A Delhi court on Saturday remanded Shankar Mishra, who is accused of urinating on a woman traveling on an Air India flight, to 14 days in remand on Saturday rejecting a police request to take him into custody.
Police requested that he be held for three days for questioning in custody, saying he needed to be identified by three crew members, a captain and other passengers.
Metropolitan Magistrate Anamika issued an order for Mishra’s detention, saying his detention was not required by the police to record the statements of other witnesses, including the flight crew and other passengers.
Just because there is public pressure, don’t do it. said the judge.
“For all the above reasons… no personal computer is required to record witnesses’ statements. They may be cross-examined in his absence. Data can be saved and his computer is not needed,” the judge said.
The court noted, on the basis of the evidence, that the accused, prima facie, did not cooperate with the investigation.
Reading the files shows that the accused deliberately avoided joining the investigation. In order to conduct further investigations and to record the statements of the crew members and to record statements, he need not be detained. »
During the argument, the court asked the police why he had requested his detention.
“He is not required for interrogation of others, TIP (identification test). Everything is known? Why is his custody required? No one else will be arrested. There is no basis for PC,” the judge said.
Police presented in court during oral arguments that the flight crew failed to handle the situation and were also complicit in the alleged crime.
Meanwhile, the police refused to hand over a copy of the FIR to a lawyer representing the complainant, saying, “The case is so high-profile that we would not want a copy of the complaint for anyone other than the complainant.”
