The High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Jasbir, one of the five accused in the Murthal gang-rape case after charges pressed on him could not be proved. The order came from Justice Rekha Mittal after petitioner’s counsel submitted that following forensic science laboratory’s negative DNA report against the five accused, Section 376-D of IPC (gang-rape) was dropped against them.
