New Delhi, Sep 13 (UNI) Father of Anuj Aditya, one of the victims of the BMW hit-and-run case, today filed an application in the Delhi High Court seeking cancellation of the bail of the accused Utsav Bhasin fearing he might flee to Singapore tonight.
Two persons, Anuj Aditya and Mriganka were hit by the BMW near Moolchand flyover during early hours on Thursday. Driver of the car, 19-year-old Utsav Bhasin, was arrested by the Delhi police almost 30 hours after the incident from the ISBT. He was, however, granted bail within minutes of arrest by the Lajpat Nagar police station.
Anuj Aditya, who was admitted to the AIIMS trauma centre in a critical condition, died this morning. His father Dr Rajinder Singh has filed an application in the court seeking cancellation of Utsav's bail fearing he might flee to Singapore where he has enrolled in a course recently.
Counsel for Dr Singh, Vinod Tyagi, filed the application for hearing on urgent basis. The application was forwarded at the residence of Chief Justice A P Shah who later marked it to Justice Veena Birbal.
Today being a holiday, the application will be heard at the residence of Justice Veena Birbal at Swasthya Vihar (East Delhi) this evening.
Mr Tyagi has contended in the application that the accused is a son of a wealthy businessman and will flee India. The victim's family is apprehensive as they believe the police is trying to shield Utsav and is therefore, not recording the evidence against him.
