In reply to the above contention it is submitted by the learned A.G.A. and the learned counsel for the complainant:
I.That prior the alleged incident on 29.7.2003 at 4.20 p.m. Jitendra @ Pucchi, Dharmendra Singh, Virendra Singh sons of Dalel Singh and Manoj son of Faqira have committed the offence in which Ravindra Pal Singh sustained injuries and Sheru Singh @ Satyendra Singh was murdered. In other cases Jitendra Singh is still in Jail and remaining co-accused Dharmendra Singh, Virendra Singh are still absconding and the Government has announced award of Rs. 2500/- each.
II.That the bail application of Jitendra Singh has already been rejected by this court and to finish the evidence of this case brother of Jitendra Singh who is absconding along with the applicant and others co-accused persons attacked the injured with the intention to commit his murder so that his evidence may not be recorded in the court.
III.That the applicant is relative of the other co-accused Dharmendra Singh and Virendra Singh because he had sold his car to Dharmendra.

V.That the first informant is a house hold lady. She disclose the name of other co-accused in the F.I.R. who were known to her by name but the applicant's name was not known to her that is why his name could not be disclosed in the F.I.R. The injured Ravindra Pal Singh has disclosed the name of the applicant in a statement recorded under section 161 Cr.P.C. on 4.3.2005 at Apollo Hospital, New Delhi.
VI.That the entry made by the doctor in the medical report that the injury was caused by two unknown persons was not relevant because no Dying Declaration of the injured was recorded. Therefore, the applicant cannot be released on bail.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the submission made by the learned counsel for the applicant and the learned A.G.A. and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case and considering the seriousness of the offence and the conduct the applicant is not entitled for bail. The prayer for bail is refused.
