POCSO case: Kerala HC order on bail plea likely on March 8


Kochi, Mar 6 (PTI) The Kerala high court has reserved its judgment in the anticipatory bail pleas moved by the owner of city-based Hotel 18 and two others, including a woman, in a Pocso case against them.

Justice Gopinath P, after hearing arguments on behalf of the accused and the prosecution, said he will pronounce the order on March 8 on the pleas by Hotel 18 owner Roy J Vayalat and his friends Anjali Vadakkepurakkal and Syju M Thankachan.

The accused have alleged that the complaint of molestation and sexual assault against them by the minor’s mother was “a deliberate attempt at blackmail”.

On a previous date of hearing, after perusing the statement given by the minor under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code before a magistrate, the high court had said “there appears to be a ring of truth in that”.

“The (section) 164 statement shows how the entire thing was planned. There is sufficient material in it to indicate that accused no. 3 (Anjali Vadakkepurakkal) had practically enticed the girl by saying she (minor) will be made a model.
