The Bombay High Court on Wednesday reserved the order in a bail application filed by of Nadim Shaikh, convicted in the Raj Agrawal-kidnap and murder case.
Six-year-old Raj Agrawal was kidnapped on his way to school in 2004. His skeleton was found in Daund, Pune.
While reserving the order, court said: “Some questions will have to be answered at some point. Police found the skeleton after the father filed petition.”
Raj’s father Kunjbihari and mother Aarti have refused to accept that the skeleton belonged to their son.
Additional public prosecutor Usha Kejariwal submitted a report that states the skeleton found was related to Kunjbihari.
Kejariwal pointed out that the clothes found on the skeleton were identified by Raj’s school teacher as the t-shirt had his school’s logo. Braces were also found on the skeleton’s teeth, as reported in the complaint by parents, said Kejariwal.
She argued that although the body was in a bad condition, but “If clothes are identified then it's a good conviction.”
Shaikh had sought bail on ground of parity.
