New Delhi, August 21

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of pro-Khalistani group member Malkit Singh, alias Shera, an accused in the September 2019 Tarn Taran blast case.

"We find no ground to interfere with the impugned order passed by the High Court dismissing the appeal filed by the petitioner herein," a three-Judge Bench led by Justice NV Ramana said dismissing Shera's petition.

"As a sequel to the above, pending interlocutory application also stands disposed of," the top court said in its order. Shera had filed a special leave petition challenging the July 6 order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court rejecting his bail plea.

He had sought bail on health grounds and challenged an order of NIA Special Court, Mohali, which had turned down his bail plea in June.

However, the High Court had rejected his bail plea saying the trial court's order clearly established that he was in constant touch with co-accused and an active member of pro-Khalistan terrorist gang. He was associated with other members of the gang with intention to further its activities and after hatching a conspiracy, planned to carry out terrorist attack by causing explosion, the High Court had said. — TNS
