During the course of investigation, burnt articles have been recovered and were sent to forensic science examination. In forensic science examination, it was found that these articles were burnt by some inflammatory substance.

‘The petitioner has a long criminal history of 15 cases. A lawmaker cannot become a law breaker. Considering the long checkered criminal history of the accused-applicant and the fact that he is a lawmaker, who allegedly has broken and taken the law in his hand, this Court does not consider it to be a fit case for enlarging the accused-applicant on bail at this stage’, the Court observed while rejecting the bail application.
