New Delhi, Dec 18: The Supreme Court has refused to grant anticipatory bail to Goa politician John Fernandes, accused of raping a Russian girl.
"It is not a case for granting bail," a bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan said.
Earlier, the Bombay High Court cancelled Fernandes anticipatory bail granted by a trial court.
"Whether the allegation is right or wrong, it is difficult to grant bail," the bench, also comprising Justices B Sudershan Reddy and P Sathasivam, said.
Fernandes is accused of raping the Russian girl on Dec 1.
