New Delhi, Sep 16 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today directed Utsav Bhasin, the main accused in the September 11 BMW hit-and-run case, not to approach any witness or tamper with evidence.

The court had earlier asked the Delhi Police to impound Utsav's passport.

Advocate Vinod Tyagi had filed an urgent application on Saturday on behalf of Dr Rajinder Singh, the father of Anuj Aditya, one of the victims in the case, seeking cancellation of Utsav's bail fearing he might flee the country.

The High Court, however, did not cancel Utsav's bail.

Utsav, who was arrested nearly 30 hours after the accident, was granted bail at Lajpat Nagar police station within a few hours of his arrest as police said an accident is a 'bailable offence'.

It was only after Anuj succumbed to his injuries at the AIIMS Trauma Centre on September 13 that Utsav was charged for a non-bailable offence under section 304 IPC (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) instead of section 304(a) for bailable offence.

The other victim Mrigank Srivastav has been discharged from the hospital. Police have recorded his statement.
