Bombay High Court granted an anticipatory bail to BJP leader Kirit Somaiya and his son Neil Somaiya who were booked for cheating as they were collecting money for the restoration of the INS Vikrant, Indian Navy’s first aircraft carrier. Mumbai police is investigating this case in which they informed the court as of now they have not received any evidence to prove the charges applied on Kirit Somaiya and Neil Somaiya.
Anil Kokil corporator of Shiv Sena told Afternoon Voice “ It is easy to get a bail especially if person is seeking bail from the BJP party”
A case which was registered against the BJP leader Kirit Somaiya and Neil Somaiya are under sections 420 for cheating, dishonesty, inducing the delivery of the property, 406 for the punishment of the criminal breach of trust and 34 acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in Mumbai at Trombay Police station. INS Vikrant is an aircraft carrier which played an important role during the war in Bangladesh in 1971 after which it was not used. In the year 2013 ship’s maintenance was becoming difficult so it was sold to a private company for approximately 60 crore.
Nationalist Congress party leader Clyde Crasto told Afternoon Voice that “Justice should be equal for all and not to favour anyone and when the government did give permission to collect the funds for INS Vikrant one needs to know”.
Anant Bhiku Nar corporator from Shivsena said “ All the documents, in this case, should be checked thoroughly and also it should be checked on which grounds the anticipatory bail was requested”
Somnath Sangle ex- corporator with shiv sena party told afternoon voice “Investigation is not done properly in a biased manner and when Sena leader Sanjay Raut spoke about kirit Somaiya’s case and its investigation at that time he was further taken for the investigation in patra chawl case”
Balchandra Mhatre shiv sena corporator told Afternoon Voice “Shiv Sena party has trust in Sanjay Raut and why the investigating team not checking all the details of BJP party leaders”
