The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday granted interim bail to former Haryana DGP SPS Rahtore after two fresh First Information Reports (FIRs) were filed against him by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the Ruchika Girhotra molestation case, say media reports.
Rathore also earned reprieve in the third case registered against him for allegedly abetting Ruchika’s suicide, with the court directing CBI to give him a four-day notice before arresting him.
Rathore’s anticipatory bail plea will be heard by the court when the CBI files its final report in the matter after investigations. Till then the interim relief will continue.
The former Haryana top cop had filed a plea seeking anticipatory bail in all three fresh FIRs filed against him, first by the Haryana police and later by the CBI, and had sought quashing of these FIRs.
