The judicial custody of Utsav Bhasin, a Haryana industrialist's teenaged son accused of killing a motorcyclist with his BMW car, was on Friday extended by 14 days by a Delhi court.
Metropolitan Magistrate Saurabh Kulshrestha sent the 19-year-old accused to jail till December four after he was produced in court after the expiry of his judicial custody.
Bhasin, who is in jail since September 27 after he surrendered before the police following the Delhi High Court's refusal to grant him anticipatory bail, has filed a fresh bail application in the High Court.
The High Court, taking his application on record, has asked the police to file their reply on November 25.
Earlier, a magisterial court on October 17 had dismissed his bail plea saying the probe was at initial stage and his release could hamper it.
Bhasin (19) was allegedly at the wheels when his BMW car hit two men on a motorcycle around 2.30 am on September 11 near Moolchand flyover in South Delhi here.
Anuj Singh, a BPO employee who received spinal injuries, had succumbed to his injuries on the next day of the incident. While another victim Mrigank Singh, a journalist, was hospitalised.
Bhasin, who was earlier granted bail at the police station, was facing re-arrest after stringent section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the IPC, which prescribes life imprisonment as the maximum sentence, was invoked against him as victim Mrigank alleged that their bike was dragged by the offending car.
