Delhi Court Grants Bail To Ex-HC Judge Quddusi

Newdelhi:27/9/17:: Former Chhattisgarh High Court judge Ishrat Masroor Quddusi has “deep roots in the society” and cannot tamper with evidence, a Delhi court today said while granting him bail in connection with an alleged medical college corruption case.

It, however, directed the 67-year-old former judicial officer to surrender his passport to the CBI within two days and not leave the country without its permission.

“This court is cognizant of the fact that Quddusi has been a judge of High Court for 17 years, though at the same time, no special concession can be showered on him solely due to this fact.

“Nonetheless, it also goes on to demonstrate that he has deep roots in the society and the apprehension of CBI that he would flee away or influence the witnesses or tamper with evidence, remain in the realm of apprehension only which seems unfounded and unsubstantiated,” Special Judge Manoj Jain said.

The court gave the relief to Quddusi on a personal bond of Rs one lakh and a surety of a like amount considering that he had cooperated with CBI probe and was not required to be kept in jail any further.
