Bansal had moved the ADJ court against the order of the trial court of Meenakshi Gupta (JMIC), which dismissed his plea for default bail on June 20, as Bansal claimed that the order passed by the court of JMIC is untenable under law and unsustainable on facts and has resulted in miscarriage of justice.
Thus the same is liable to be set aside, as the police have filed an incomplete chargesheet in the FIR filed against him. The UT Police, however, opposed Bansal’s plea and stated that the chargesheet is incomplete due to the lockdown and CFSL report is also awaited.
After hearing Bansal’s plea, the court held that “Nitesh Bansal was arrested on Feb 22 and report under section 173 (2) of CrPC qua him was filed by the police within a period of 60 days, though without FSL report and verification report of rent agreement from authority, but the fact remains that said charge-sheet contains all necessary details needed under Section 173 (2) of CrPC…”
