Chandigarh, May 3 (ANI): The bail plea of former Haryana Police chief SPS Rathore, will come up before sessions court in Chandigarh on Monday.

Rathore was sentenced to six months in jail for molesting 16-year-old Ruchika Girhotra.

He had moved the plea against the sentence and his conviction.

Sixty-eight -year-old Rathore, a 1965 batch IPS officer, who retired in 2002, was awarded the sentence by a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on December 22, 2009, for molesting Ruchika, a budding tennis player, in 1990.

Ruchika committed suicide three years later on December 28, 1993, and died the following day.

Subsequently Rathore was booked in two other criminal cases after Ruchika's father Subhash Chander Girhotra and his son Ashu filed two fresh complaints against Rathore accusing him of attempt to murder, wrongful confinement and forging of the post-mortem report of the victim.

In April, Rathore returned his Police Medal, almost three weeks after he was ordered by the Centre to do so. (ANI)
