Aman Kachroo case: Himachal HC cancels bail of all accused

July 28th, 2010 - 1:07 pm ICT by ANI  

Shimla, July 28 (ANI): The Himachal High Court on Wednesday cancelled the bail of the four students accused of killing Aman Kachroo at their college campus last year.

The accused have been ordered to surrender to the trial court by tomorrow morning.

Last week, a lower court granted bail to them on the grounds that the testimony against them had been recorded.

Nineteen-year-old Kachroo was mercilessly beaten to death by four senior doctors on March 8 at his Rajendra Prasad Medical College hostel in Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra district.

The accused have been booked under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The Supreme Court had issued a contempt notice to the two colleges as the incidents were in gross violation of the court’s directives to check ragging in educational institutions.

The Prevention of the Ragging in Colleges and Institutions Bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha in 2005. However, it is yet to become a law.

The Bill makes ragging punishable with imprisonment up to three years and a fine of Rs 25,000. (ANI)
