"The applicant is in custody for about two years. As already discussed, the trial will take its own time. The public witnesses have not been examined but the reason, therefore, has been beyond the control of the court," the judge said in the order of March 3.
" Similarly, the seriousness of the allegations and gravity of the offence is also not absolute grounds to deny bail. The non-examination of public witnesses cannot be made an absolute ground to deny all bail applications," the judge said.
Advocate Ravi Drall, appearing for the accused, submitted that Islam has been in custody since February 2021 and the mere presence of an accused person can not render liable for constructive liability.

After hearing the submissions of both sides observed, "the court is to strike a balance between the liberty guaranteed to the accused persons and the rights of the victims." (ANI)
