New Delhi, Sep 26 (UNI) Delhi High Court today denied anticipatory bail to Utsav Bhasin, accused of killing a person in an accident involving his BMW car in south Delhi.
Hearing his petition for the anticipatory bail, Justice Veena Birbal ordered the petition dismissed.
Nineteen-year-old Utsav had approached the High Court for anticipatory bail in the case after the city police imposed additional charge against him under a harsher penal provision of IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder).
Though he was granted bail soon after the incident, he is facing re-arrest as the police invoked a harsher penal provision against him when the victim Anuj Singh succumbed to his injuries on September 12.
Son of industrialist R K Bhasin of Bahadurgarh in Haryana, Utsav had challenged the September 18 order passed by a trial court dismissing his bail petition.
Informing the court that he was ready to join the investigation, he submitted there was no evidence to establish that he had any motive to kill Anuj, who was travelling on the motorcycle when the car hit it.
