New Delhi, Nov 6 (UNI) The bail application of Utsav Bhasin, son of a Haryana-based industrialist, who is accused of killing a person while driving his BMW car, was today dismissed by a city court.

Bhasin, a 19-year-old management student, allegedly rammed his BMW on two youths Anuj Aditya Chauhan, 25, and his friend Mrigank Srivastava. Chauhan, riding pillon on Srivastava's bike, succumbed to his injuries due to the accident.

Additional Sessions Judge Brijesh Kumar Garg, after hearing the arguments on behalf of prosecution and defence, pronounced the order. The court said the accused Bhasin has been charge-sheeted for the offences under Sections 279, 338, and 304 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), out of which the offence under Section 304 IPC is non-bailable.

The court further said the material evidence on record collected by the investigating officer, including the statements of the injured Mrigank Srivastava, independent public eye-witness Omvir Singh and TSR driver Vijay Kumar, made it clear that Bhasin was driving the vehicle at a very fast speed and in a rash and negligent manner.

Even after causing the accident, Bhasin did not bother to stop the offending vehicle for a quite long distance and had not cared for the fact that the deceased Chauhan was thrown on to the bonnet of his car, due to which he suffered fatal injuries.

The court, after rejecting the bail application, said all the circumstances made the allegations of the prosecution very serious.
