The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday reserved its judgement on the cancellation of bail of controversial ‘godman’ Rampal in connection with a murder case registered against him in 2006.

A division bench of the court had suo moto taken up the issue of cancellation of bail on November 10 when Rampal failed to appear in a contempt case.

The bench comprising justices M Jeyapaul and Darshan Singh reserved the judgement after hearing the defence, the state and amicus curiae.
