Rahul suffering gunshot injuries, after noticing that the injured had given a fake address during the medical and remained untraceable.
The court noted that the other accused Imran was already granted similar relief. The excerpts of long poem that the judge wrote:
I have heard, heard a lot.
Mind is clear, with claims tall;
Its my time to take a call.
Babu has a sordid past;
Proof is scant, which may not last.
His omnipotence can’t be assumed;
Peril to vanished Rahul, is legally fumed.
Take your freedom from the cage you are in;
Till the trial is over, the state is reigned in.
The State proclaims; to have the cake and eat it too;
The Court comes calling; before the cake is eaten, bake it too.
