Puttur: Gang rape of college student - High court grants bail to four accused


Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur (MS)

Puttur, Dec 12: All the accused students, who were involved in the gang rape of a girl student, studying in first year of a prestigious college of the town that took place in a car at a deserted area of Bellippady Katara of the taluk were granted bail by the high court. All the accused were in judicial custody so far.

The accused who were given bail by the high court are Gurunandan (19), resident of Ganadamoole of Bajathur village, Prajwal (19), residing at Rajashree Kripa of Perne, Kishan (19), resident of Perne Kadambu, Sunil (19), a resident of Piligunda of Aryaapu village and Prakhyat (19), a resident of Balya of Barimaru village of Bantwal taluk.

Out of the five accused, the high court had already granted bail to Prajwal. Now the other four are also granted bail.

Lawyer Mahesh Kaje argued in favour of accused Kishan and Gurunandan, while Rajashekhar Ilyar argued for accused Sunil. Arun Shyam was the lawyer who represented accused Prakhyat. Prajwal, who was already granted bail in this case was defended in the court by lawyers Arun Shyam and Mahesh Kaje.

In the month of March the accused had taken the girl student in a car on the pretext of dropping her to her home and sexually harassed her in the same car at Bellippady Katara area. They had also filmed the whole act on mobile phone and threatened the girl student with dire consequences if she revealed the whole saga to anyone. The Puttur police had filed a chargesheet in the court after conducting preliminary investigation.

The video of the rape had gone viral on social media. A suo moto case was filed in the women's police station of Puttur. Later based on the complaint given by the victim girl student, the personnel of women's police station had arrested the five accused boys, students of the same college as that of the victim girl. In addition, the Puttur city police had arrested people for forwarding and sharing the video on social media. However, these 11 people were later released on bail. Later a separate chargesheet was filed in the Puttur court against these 11 accused.

The subordinate court had rejected the bail application of the five students accused of rape. However, now the high court has granted bail to all the five accused.

    does not make sense. f the evidence was conclusive, they would have been denied bail and charged. If released on bail even after evidence, the judicial system needs to be corrected and the accused rightfully deserve the fate of the Hyderabad 'accused'. Also the judge who granted bail.

    Wow just wow.... how come they got bail. Is it just because BJP got majority.

    The judge and the lawyers even with the evidence got them walk free.

    Where are the BD gang now. Where is SRS.

    They will protest only if any Muslim is involved. Come on just think about the girl, imagine if the same thing happened with your loved ones.

    You can see thousands protesting if they caught any beef traders. Why not now???

    What they are waiting for? Waiting to happen like Unnao?

    Why the females are silent. Is it only because they are Hindus. Remember the girl was also a hindu.

    Yes there was a vedio and the big mistake what they did was leaking the vedio.. they should be punished... not just for making the vedio but for leaking the vedio.... here even the girl should be punished... the entire act was with the concent of girl which the vedio clearly shows.. no drugs were given .. these kind of youth both girls and boys are a very bad example in society... they think fun is everything in life...

    @jhanavi

    You said, "not just for making the video but for leaking the video".
    Because of video, everything came into picture !!!!!!!!!!!!
    Think, if this video did not come to notice" this guy would roam around like big hero's thinking we can do anything.

    After 5 years they will do the same kind of acts and roam around & the same way they would grow & make friends with others & spoil them by saying we did this sort of thing nothing happened you can also join us.

    Yes, I agree, 100% correct "the entire act was with the consent of girl which the video clearly shows".
    Parents should always be friendly with their children, also should know what they are doing. All of a sudden this kind of act will not happen. When we find small changes only we need to talk to them and bring them to the right path.

    As per our constitution, if a person cannot afford a lawyer...State ( Government ) should provide a Counsel for the accused in Criminal cases....

    Cases cannot proceeded without accused being represented...UNFORTUNATELY....

    In my opinion, even recent SC judgement of P Chidambaram clearly states ...during trial, bail is a rule and jail is an exception ....Judges should use desecration and deny bail to serious offenders...So we will not have Hyderabad like situation ...For me it( Encounter) is like hot water in my mouth ...Cannot drink it cannot throw it out as well...

    All depends on defense Layers argument and trying to prove the culprits as innocent or not at fault.
    Bailing out the rapists in an easy way cannot be justified. They should have been sent to prison for few months and also subjected counselling to correct their behavior.
