The Supreme Court has rejected the anticipatory bail plea of architect Anurag Garg, one of the prime suspects in Navi Mumbai builder S.K. Loharia’s murder case in February 2013. For the builders and developers allegedly involved in the case, Garg was the common architect.
Fifty-year-old Loharia had been killed near his office at sector 28 in Vashi by two bike-borne assailants on February 16, 2013.
The rejection of his bail came after all of his earlier bail pleas had been turned down. Twice, he had applied for anticipatory bails in a Thane court and twice in the Bombay High Court. According to reports, the court on Friday had given Garg 20 days to surrender. The architect was absconding. Another accused Mahesh Bijlani is also absconding.
