Mumbai: An air hostess has approached the Bombay high court seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail granted to Amit Gill, brother-in-law of actor Arjun Rampal. The petitioner has filed a complaint of molestation against Gill and a special women’s court had granted him pre-arrest bail in July this year on the ground of delay.

According to petitioner there is no provision that FIR cannot be registered because of delay and the complainant could be termed as pioneer in #MeToo campaign as she reported about an incident that happened in 2016 but since she was not a celebrity nobody noticed it.

 

The petition came up for hearing before Justice Prakash D. Naik who iss-ued notice to Gill. Gill has already denied allegations before the court and his say would be heard by the HC in due course.

Victim’s lawyer Mubin Solkar has contended before the court that it is a very serious matter where victim’s drink was spiked by some intoxicating substance and after she became semi-unconscious she was molested and her photographs were taken. The accused had threatened her that he will upload the photographs on social media if she goes to police and this is the reason she didn’t report to police immediately.

He further argued that the sessions court granted pre-arrest bail to accused on the ground of delay but in such cases where victim comes before a court alleging that she has been molested and her drink was spiked than the court should not act hyper technical and grant pre-arrest bail on the ground of delay, as the victim took time to gather courage and report the incident.

The petitioner through her lawyer is demanding that the anticipatory bail granted to Gill should be cancelled because his custodial interrogation is needed to recover her photographs and to find out what intoxicating substance was used to spike her drink.
