The CBI special judge rejected the regular bail application of sacked assistant sub inspector Seelak Ram,who was booked along with head constable Balraj for raping Rohtak resident Sarita on April 10,2008.

Sarita had later committed suicide outside the Police Headquarters in Panchkula on June 9,2008.

Seelak Ram had moved an application for his regular bail almost six months ago and after hearing both sides,the CBI special judge A K Tyagi rejected his bail plea. The CBI,which is investigating the case,opposed Ram’s bail plea.

The case is at evidence stage.

Seelak Ram and Balraj were also named by the CBI along with the then Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Rohtak Dheeraj Setia,Inspector Pawan Kumar and head constable Ramphal,for being responsible for Sarita’s suicide.

Sarita,in her suicide note,had alleged that she was committing suicide as the police failed to take action against two police officials who raped her in Rohtak in 2008,when she was summoned by CIA staff,who had arrested her husband in a theft case. She had committed suicide in front of the police headquarters at Panchkula when she did not get justice from the Rohtak police.

After serious allegations against the police,the Haryana government handed over investigations to the CBI.
