For the first time in Supreme Court history, single judge bench to hear bail pleas

Justice Khanna, who read the judgment for the bench, said it is a concurring judgment but Justice Gupta has given some additional reasons. The top court interpreted Section 102 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which gives power to police for seizure of any property during criminal investigation of any case.

The Bombay High Court, in its majority verdict, had held that police has no power to seize property during the course of investigation. The Maharashtra government had challenged the said verdict of the high court before the top court.
