Chandigarh: Former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore on Friday failed to get any relief from the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which deferred the prouncement of the verdict on his revision petition in the Ruchika Girhotra molestation case to June 29.
Vacation Judge Ajay Tewari, who had deferred the prouncement of the verdict on Rathore”s plea till today, adjourned the case.
Rathore, who is now lodged in Chandigarh”s Burail Jail, had moved the High Court with a review petition, seeking bail on medical grounds.
Earlier, the Chandigarh District and Sessions Court had rejected Rathore”s appeal against his conviction in the case.
His lawyer-wife Abha Rathore pleaded with the judge to hear the case, arguing that her husband was facing severe health problems.
She also initiated a process for a revised petition against the verdict in the court of Justice S.S. Saron, contending that the appellate court had passed the order under media pressure.
