Judicial magistrate Shilpi Gupta on Wednesday granted bail to former president of Chandigarh Territorial Youth Congress Vijay Pal Singh Dimpy, facing allegations of cheating Punjab’s former director general of police (DGP) SS Virk, against bail bonds of 50,000.
The bail was granted after Dimpy deposited a demand draft of 50 lakh in name of Virk’s wife.
Dimpy was arrested on April 6 on the complaint Virk wherein he had accused him (Dimpy) of duping him of 50 lakh in 2006. Once a close associate of Virk, Dimpy was arrested on a warrant after a case was registered against him in January 2013.
As per the allegations, Virk in 2006 had paid Dimpy 50 lakh to look for property in Chandigarh. Virk had alleged that Dimpy failed to locate the property and did not return the money. The complaint was filed in 2012 and a case was registered in 2013.
Dimpy had applied for bail which was objected by the counsel of Virk.
Dimpy had complained of chest pain soon after his arrest and was sent to judicial custody. The police have already moved an application of recalling the order of sending Dimpy to judicial custody that is still pending.
