The accused, Vinod Kumar, 51, on Tuesday filed a written application to the District and Sessions Court, alleging that he is being harassed physically by the policemen on duty in the jail and judicial lock-up.
After the crime, the accused — identified as Kamlesh, had been nabbed by the public who handed him over to police. A case of murder was lodged against him on the basis of a complaint filed by the minor’s father.
Defence counsel Advocate PC Rana argued that as the prosecution was relying on these documents, they should be given to them so that they know about the prosecution’s case against Kuldeep and prepare his defence properly.
The incident took place in the courtroom in front of the judge. While the 20-year-old victim’s mother was recording her statement, the accused Johnny stated that the victim’s mother was herself threatening her.
