Top Court Dismisses Anticipatory Bail Plea Of Ex-MP Ateeq Ahmad's Son
The Supreme Court Tuesday refused anticipatory bail to Mohammad Umar, son of former MP Ateeq Ahmad, in a case of kidnapping and assault on a businessman in a UP prison, and said there are "certain privileged people" in the country whom "police are not able to catch despite non-bailable warrant".
A bench of Justices N V Ramana, Surya Kant and Aniruddha Bose dismissed the petition filed by Umar challenging the December 7, 2020 order of the Allahabad High Court refusing to grant him anticipatory bail.
The court said it seems the police (CBI) are not acting against the accused.
"In this country there are certain privileged people, whom police are not able to catch despite non-bailable warrants against them," the bench observed.
The police are not able to execute a non-bailable arrest warrant against Umar, it said.
The bench said, "We see no reason to interfere with the impugned order passed by the High Court dismissing the 2nd anticipatory bail application of the petitioner. The Special Leave Petition is, accordingly, dismissed".
