The sessions court on Wednesday rejected the anticipatory bail application filed by dismissed senior inspector Arun Borude, accused of raping a minor girl, observing that prima facie a case has been made out against him.
However, the court granted him bail in a trespassing case. “We will challenge the court decision in the Bombay High Court,” said a source from Powai police station.
The MIDC police had booked Borude for house break-in and trespassing as the Andheri flat in which the alleged crime took place was sealed and was under the possession of court receive.
Borude has been absconding since the registration of the case two weeks ago.
Shanta Gaikwad, who allegedly induced the 15-year-old girl to indulge in sexual acts, was arrested by the Powai police on November 2 following the complaint filed by the victim’s mother. Gaikwad reportedly named Borude and another man, an estate agent, as her customers.
Though initially the matter was heard by ML Tahaliyani, principal judge of the Mumbai Sessions and the City Civil court, the case was transferred to another court on Tuesday.
The state government appointed advocate Niteen Pradhan as the special public prosecutor in the case.
Borude’s lawyer Vaibhav Bagage argued that there was no evidence of Borude’s involvement and he had been falsely implicated. The Powai police claimed that there was more evidence to nail Borude and he was absconding.
