Apex Court Issues Notice to CBI on Murder Convict DP Yadav’s Bail Plea

The Supreme Court issued notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation; on a bail plea of DP Yadav, on medical grounds. Yadav is a former cabinet minister, Uttar Pradesh. The CBI Court convicted DP Yadav in a murder case of Ex-Member of Legislative Assembly, Mahendra Singh Bhati. Bhati was shot dead at Dadra railway crossing in December 1992. The Court imprisoned him for life. Hence, Yadav remains in the Dehradun jail in compliance with the judgement.

Previously, the Court granted him interim bail to undergo a spinal surgery at a hospital in Ghaziabad; after which he surrendered as per the Court’s order on 6 December 2018. Similarly, Yadav filed a bail plea last year before the bench headed by Former Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi; but the Supreme Court declined with a direction to the authorities to take proper care of him within the jail premises.

Advocate Vikram Chaudhari, representing Yadav; submitted that DP Yadav faces post-operative complications. He relied on the reports of Yadav from the aforementioned Hospital. Moreover, he sought directions from the bench to the State on the reasons for opposing the petition.

Taking note of the arguments, the bench, comprising of Justice L Nageswara Rao, Justice Abdul Nazeer and Justice Sanjeev Khanna; issued a notice to CBI seeking its response. The Apex Court has listed the matter for further proceedings in the next week.
