Police Going In Appeal Against Bail To Kishtwar Pharmacist

SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Police have decided to go in appeal against the court granting bail to a Dachan pharmacist, Zahoor Ahmad, The Indian Express reported. Ahmad was freed by the court observing there was no evidence against him.

Zahoor Ahmed was arrested on January 6, 2020, from Renia, his place of posting, in Marwah tehsil.

On Thursday, the designated court under UAPA had observed that charges were “a successful attempt to falsely implicate” Ahmed. The court ordered his released “forthwith” from Jammu Central Jail on interim bail subject to him furnishing a surety bond of Rs 25,000, and if he is not named in any other case. “In his bail order, Special Judge Gupta held that there was no evidence of Ahmed’s involvement in any offence under UAPA and that he was only “performing his professional duty” if he was intending to deliver medicines even to a terrorist,” the newspaper reported.

Now the police have decided to go in appeal against the court order. Police have said that court granted Ahmad bail on “technical grounds” in one of the cases registered against him under UAPA. “We had evidence against him and we had kept a photocopy of the evidence in that particular case. We will take up the case with the judiciary again,” the newspaper quoted SSP Kishtwar, Harmeet Singh, saying. He said Ahmad was “involved in anti-national activities’’.
