POCSO Court clerk issues fake bail order to set rape accused free in Kanpur

Kanpur: In a shocking incident, a clerk in POCSO court in Kanpur issued a fake bail order to release a man accused of rape, who was arrested two months ago.

After getting released from jail, the accused Narendra Sachan, went to the victim's house and threatened her family to withdraw the case, failing which he will kill them.

The incident came to light after the victim's family members complained to the police about the accused threatening them.

During the probe, it was revealed that the POCSO court clerk in connivance with a lawyer converted the rejected bail order to acceptance of bail.

On June 6, the 13-year-old girl was raped by Sachan, who is her neighbour, at her home when her parents were out of the house for work in Pipauri of Gujaini area in the district.

The accused gained entry into the victim's house enquiring about her father and then committed the crime.

Acting on the complaint of the victim's father, a case was lodged against Sachan under various sections and he was arrested on June 8. Later, he was sent to jail.

Sachan had filed a bail plea in the POCSO court, which was dismissed. The court's order was also uploaded online on e-court portal.

However, within one week of the dismissal of his bail plea, Sachan was out of jail.

When the victim's counsel enquired about the accused getting released despite the dismissal of the bail plea, it came to the fore that the clerk of the court in connivance with the accused's lawyer had issued a fake bail order.

“We are shocked. This happened so brazenly. This is a crime of the highest order. Ashwani, a lawyer, and two others were involved and should be strictly dealt with,“ said the girl’s father, reports the Hindustan Times.

Joint Police Commissioner Anand Prakash Tiwari said that the accused, his advocate and the clerk will be arrested soon.
