SC rejects PUC paper leakage case kingpin's bail plea

The Supreme Court has dismissed the bail petition made by the alleged kingpin of the 2016 PUC paper leakage case. A bench of Chief Justice consisting of SA Bobde, Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian rejected the plea filed by Kumaraswamy against the Karnataka High Court's judgment of September 11, 2020, declining him the relief.

Senior advocate Shashikiran Shetty, appearing for the petitioner, questioned the validity of the High Court's order. He claimed out of 18 accused, 17 had already been released on bail and the trial in the matter had not made any substantial progress. The High Court had declined to grant him bail, after noting some of the co-accused who were released, had either remained absent or absconded in trial court proceedings.

It had also noted the accused-petitioner was a key player, who entered the strong room of sub-treasury at Hanagal to take photographs of question papers, so he could not be granted any parity with other accused.
