New Delhi: The Delhi police is planning to go on appeal against the bail granted to Sreesanth and Ankith Chavan by the Saketh court. The Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said, they are waiting for the copy of the bail order to come. Once that is got and studied, they will take a final decision on the matter. At the same time Sreesanth’s advocates are planning to approach the High Court to get the case totally quashed.
The Saketh court while granting bail to Sreesanth and others had clearly stated that there was absolutely no evidence available, to invoke ‘Mcoca’ on the accused. The court, in fact, had severely criticized the police for trying to invoke ‘Mcoca’. It’s under these circumstances that the police are thinking of approaching the High Court for cancelling the bail order. The police are still of the opinion that there is nothing wrong in invoking ‘Mcoca’ against Sreesanth and Ankith Chavan. They still feel that according to sub section 1a of section 1 of ‘Mcoca’ Sreesanth could be tried as a culprit. A decision will be taken in this regard by the end of the week.
