In a major setback to Gurgaon police, a Gurgaon court not only granted bail to the Class XII student in Monday's BMW road rage incident, but it also pulled up the police for fabricating false statements to implicate the minor in the case.

The minor had been named by police in the attempt to murder case along with his bodyguard and driver on Monday.

Chief Judicial Magistrate D N Bhardwaj did not seem convinced with the police's theory. Counsel Sat Pal Gupta contended the complainant himself had said in his primary statement that the boy did not hurt him and rather he was separating the two quarreling groups. Gupta said police falsely added supplementary statement to the complaint claiming the boy was heard asking the guard to open fire.

Gurgaon police commissioner SS Deswal said the name of the boy figured in the FIR as he was also involved in the case and present at the crime scene along with the two other accused. The boy's mother, claimed the police acted against the provisions of the Indian Juvenile Act and did let him use his phone.
