Chandigarh, Jan 12 (ANI): The Punjab and Haryana High Court is expected to take up the anticipatory bail application of former Haryana Director General of Police SPS Rathore.

Rathore has three cases pending against him in the court; all filed by Ruchika's family and friends.

Ruchika's family lawyer Pankaj Bharadwaj had earlier filed two First Information Reports (FIRs) against Rathore.

The lawyer had claimed that the first FIR was filed for forging documents like the inquest report and the other for illegal detention of Ruchika's brother, Ashu, who was kept in illegal detention at the behest of Rathore and tortured.

The third case is that of abetment to suicide against him.

Teenager Ruchika had killed herself three years after the incident by drinking poison.

Meanwhile, the Haryana police have managed to track down Veena, the woman whom Rathore alleges to be Ruchika's stepmother. There are reports that she is being interrogated by the police with regard to this case.

Rathore's counsel and wife, Abha Rathore, had earlier, while appealing for Rathore's bail, claimed that Ruchika committed suicide because of her father's extra-marital affair. (ANI)
