Counsel for the bail petitioner states on instructions that the petitioner has no criminal past relating to the offences prescribing sentence of seven years and more, or when on conviction, the sentence imposed was more than three years.

The petitioner had earlier approached the Sessions Court for grant of interim bail on the same grounds, but his request was rejected.;
