New Delhi, Nov 6 (IANS) A city court Thursday dismissed a fresh bail plea of Utsav Bhasin, the 19-year-old son of a Haryana-based industralist, whose BMW car allegedly rammed into a motorcycle, killing one rider and injuring the other.Additional Sessions Judge Brijesh Garg dismissed the bail plea saying the offence is grave and referred to the statements of witnesses, including a survivor, about his speeding away from the spot after the accident without taking the victims to hospital.
On Nov 1, Delhi Police had filed the charge sheet and booked Utsav under section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and section 279 (rash and negligent driving) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for the Sep 11 accident that claimed the life of BPO employee Anuj Singh.
Section 304 carries a maximum punishment of life imprisonment.
Bhasin surrendered before police Sep 27, a day after his anticipatory bail was rejected by the Delhi High Court.
Bhasin’s car hit the two men on a motorcycle around 2.40 a.m. near Moolchand flyover in south Delhi.
While Anuj Singh, who was driving the motorbike, succumbed to his injuries a day later, Mrigank Srivastava, who was riding pillion, was injured.
