The Bombay High Court has granted bail to a cop’s son, who was accused of killing his mother at their residence in the year 2017. Justice Judge Ajey Gadkari granted bail to the 20-year-old accused as he had no other criminal record in the past year.

Accused Siddanth Ganore had killed his mother Dipali Gangore on March 23, 2017, over getting tired of the daily argument between them. Siddanth allegedly drew a smiley face with the victim’s blood near the body. As per the reports, the accused had fled to Jodhpur on May 25, 2017, from the crime spot. However, he got arrested and has been in jail since then.

Ashok Mundargi counsel of the accused said there was no evidence against Siddanth. The prosecution opposed the bail appeal and said the deceased was last seen with the accused person. As he had absconded from the spot after committing the crime.

The justice judge observed that absconding may lend weight to the other evidence establishing the guilt of an accused. Though there is hardly any evidence of guilt.

The judge said, “Even an innocent person may, when suspected of grave crimes, attempt to evade arrest. Absconding is a weak link in the chain of circumstances and is not conclusive either of guilt or a guilty conscience.” The Bombay High Court finally granted bail to the accused and taken Rs 25,000 on the surety.
