Suspended SOG ASP Divya Mittal was granted bail on April 10th in a high-profile bribery case involving a sum of 2 crores. Mittal had been arrested by the SOG for allegedly not carrying out a proper investigation in an NDPS case.
The bail was granted by Judge Khushal Singh of the NDPS court, who made a significant remark while ordering Mittal’s release. According to the judge, the SOG failed to present any written complaint or prior permission from the state government in the case against Mittal.
As a result, the judge concluded that there was no substantial evidence to hold Mittal any longer and granted him bail. Mittal’s lawyer also argued that his client was not guilty of the charges brought against him and that he had been falsely implicated by the prosecution.
The case had gained significant attention in the media, with many speculating about the alleged involvement of high-ranking officials in the corruption scandal. The release of Mittal on bail has only added fuel to the fire, with many questioning the integrity of the investigating agencies involved.
The decision to grant bail to Mittal has raised some eyebrows, with many criticizing the judiciary for being soft on corruption cases. However, Judge Khushal Singh defended his decision, stating that the law must be upheld and that every individual is entitled to a fair trial.
It remains to be seen what the next steps will be in this high-profile bribery case, and how it will impact the reputation of the investigating agencies and the judiciary. Nonetheless, the release of Divya Mittal on bail is likely to generate more public debate and scrutiny of the Indian justice system.
