Two days after dismissed encounter specialist Arun Borude sought anticipatory bail in an alleged rape case, the state government has filed an application seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail granted to him an alleged trespassing case.

Special public prosecutor Niteen Pradhan and prosecutor Poornima Kantharia informed the Bombay High Court on Friday that they have filed an application seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail granted to Borude by the sessions court on November 24.

Borude, accused of raping a minor girl, has been absconding since the registration of the case. The MIDC police had booked him for house breaking and trespassing as the Andheri (East) flat in which the alleged crime took place was sealed and was under the possession of court receiver.

The dismissed officer had approached the high court on Wednesday seeking anticipatory bail in the alleged rape case claiming that he was being victimised. He had also shown willingness to face the CBI or state CID investigation/inquiry claiming that the local police was likely to be influenced by media reports. His application said: “The applicant (Borude) is being victimised due to his past meritorious service by unhappy elements from department and antisocial persons, who were subject matter of the prosecution, encounter deaths”.

Justice RC Chavan has kept both applications for hearing on December 16.

A case was lodged after a 15-year-old girl’s parents had lodged a complaint at Powai police station. The case came to light after the girl became pregnant and delivered a baby girl in October. Borude was named by co-accused Shanta Gaikwad, who allegedly induced the minor to indulge in sexual acts.
