New Delhi :

The Allahabad high court on Friday rejected bail plea of rape accused and former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati.  

While hearing the case,  the court ordered to arrest Prajapati’s associates, Vikas Verma and Pintoo Singh in the case.  The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court will take up the case for next hearing on 26 May, 2017.

Earlier, the Allahabad High Court had stayed the bail order granted by a sessions court to former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati in a rape case.

The order was passed by Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale on an application moved by the state government through Additional Advocate General V K Shahi seeking cancellation of bail granted to Prajapati and two other co-accused in the case.

Shahi had submitted that sufficient time was not given by the sessions court to the prosecution for seeking instructions against the accused.

He had further contended that in his bail application, Prajapati had stated that he had no criminal case pending against him but six cases were pending against him.
