The Madhya Pradesh High Court today reserved its order on the bail plea of BJP MLA Kamal Patel for destroying evidence in connection with missing of a youth, who was allegedly killed.
Justice S Waghmare reserved the order after hearing both the parties. The CBI had arrested Patel from Bhopal on May 20, after which he moved the CBI court in Indore which turned down his bail application.
Patel, a former minister and his son Sudeep were among nine accused in the missing case of Durgesh Jaat. Durgesh along with Sudeep had gone to the farmhouse of Congress leader Rajendra Patil where an exchange of fire took place in Harda in March 2008.
Durgesh had sustained injuries and he was missing ever since. Suspecting that his son has been killed, Durgesh's father moved a habeas corpus petition in the High Court, which ordered a CBI probe into the matter. The CBI found that the MLA from Harda had destroyed evidence in connection with the case.
