The Karnataka High Court expressed strong displeasure when a Sub Inspector, who is an accussed in rape case, was discharged on bail. The court found that the investigation team and the district court which granted bail had committed a serious fault. The court said that the investigation team colluded with the accused to grant bail.

The district court passed the bail order without considering the gravity of the crime and the relevant situations, said the High Court. The high court set aside the bail order as bad in law.

Higher officials were directed to make a detailed enquiry and find out who helped the accused get bail.

Sub Inspector Viswanath Burada had promised to marry the young woman but later withdrew from the promise after raping her.

He was not arrested but the police team helped him get bail.

The High Court observed that police managed the case without producing necessary documents in the district court to enable him get bail.
