A Delhi court on Friday dismissed the bail pleas of the four friends of NRI student Anmol Sarna. The four, all in their 20s, have been booked under Section 22/27/29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Wason rejected the bail applications of Shivank Gambhir, Madhav Bhandari, Pranil Shah and Ritham Girhotra, who will remain in Tihar jail till September 30.

The court had on Thursday sent Gambhir and Bhandari to judicial custody while the remaining four accused, Shah and Girhotra, along with Surender Bali (46) and Naresh Mishra (60), were sent to Tihar jail on September 17.

Bali and Mishra were the security guards at the housing complex in south Delhi where the friends were partying on the night of the incident.

Sarna, according to the police, was murdered after a scuffle at a party at Shah’s flat in South Park Apartments in Kalkaji on September 13 night. He and his friends had reportedly consumed drugs in the party around 9pm and Sarna had become violent as the drugs took effect.
