Will Appeal To HC Since Bail Is Rejected By Special Court, Says Dipesh Sawant’s Lawyer
Mumbai court rejected bail pleas of 6 accused in the drugs case earlier today.
Dipesh Sawant, the housekeeper at late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s Mumbai apartment, had his bail plea rejected by the special court today. After the hearing, his lawyer said that they will be moving the High Court with the appeal. Sawant’s lawyer has also said that unlike Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty, Sawant’s charges don’t include any non-bailable offences. Sawant was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for procuring drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput.
Speaking outside the sessions court in Mumbai after the bail plea hearing, Sawant’s lawyer, Ali Dubey said, “I cannot tell you the reason why the bail was rejected but our argument was that all the sections applied to us are bailable. Our client has not been slapped with any non-bailable section.” The lawyer has also claimed that Kaizan Ibrahim, another accused in the case had a higher role to play in the case and yet he has already received bail.
