Not only he alone, but two other co-accused used to do same offences with the victims. Another child aged about 5 years had also stated the same.Court’s Decision. The Court said, Considering the heinousness of the offence, tender age of the victims and relationship of the accused-applicant of trust, it is not a fit case where the accused-applicant should be allowed to come out from the jail. In view thereof, the Court did not find any ground to grant any indulgence to the accused-applicant and therefore, the bail application was thereby rejected.
