On Thursday, February 2, 2017, Pune Sessions Court rejected one of the three accused, Zuber Iqbal Tamboli‘s bail plea in Savan Rathod murder case.

Honorable Judge M W Chandwani highlighted the point that bail needs to be rejected after considering the nature of offense, allegations, and punishment for the same.

The advocate representing the accused pointed out that Zuber Iqbal Tamboli has spent a year in jail and evidence presented against him is too weak. On the other hand, Public prosecutor Javed Khan said witnesses have identified all the three accused as well as the vehicle that was used in the crime (to get rid of Savan after partially burning him). Thus, if any of the accused gets bail, he might abscond or tamper the evidence. He also stressed on the point that even the High Court has rejected bail application of another co-accused-Imran Iqbal Tamboli.

When Savan Rathod succumbed to burn injuries on January 15, 2016, his killers were not even in police custody. Cops had just applied section 307 on the suspects even when the hospital had informed them about Savan’s death. Activist and advocate Ramesh Khemu Rathod approached the police and urged them to add section 302 in the case.

Boy’s dying declaration clearly suggests that the three accused had confirmed that he is a Hindu before pouring petrol and setting him on fire.

“It’s unfortunate that police did not apply section-295 A, 120 B, and other relevant IPC sections that were applicable due to the use of petrol and oil in the case,” said Advocate Rathod during his interaction with Cyber Journal 24.

Unfortunately, the state government has not even offered any compensation to the victim’s family as of now.

Last year, on July 30, the HC had rejected Imran Tamboli and Ibrahim Mehmood Shaikh’s bail. Next hearing date, in this case, is February 17, 2017. Visit this website to keep yourself updated about the case status.
