Today Additional sessions judge Pramod Kamat who is also holding the charge of children’ court had granted the conditional bail to Babush Monseratte in the alleged rape case of a minor girl. The court also granted bail to remaining two lady accused in this case. Babush was granted bail on the surety of rupees 1 lakh bail bond and surrender of passport. Both the accused ladies were granted the bail on the surety of Rs. 25000 each. But what happened after the bail? And where Babush went first after his release from police custody? Read the complete report here.
The bail was assured to Babush based on the arguments that took place in the court on Monday. The investigation agency left enough loopholes to get the accused away or maybe the whole thing was conspired as quoted by Babush? Nevertheless, Babush has warned the conspirators that he will expose them soon.
After the bail first thing Babush did was, he went to the Mahalaxmi temple to take the blessings of the goddess Laxmi. That might have surprised many but that is what happened today. While at the temple premises Babush spoke to the media and told them that “I have full faith in the judiciary system of our country and I know that I will come out clean from this rape case. I have done nothing wrong. I have been framed and I also know the ones who have framed me. I will expose them later since I don’t think this is the right time to expose them. Meanwhile, I would like to thank my family, my friends, for my good-wisher, my lawyers and my supporters who stood by me during these difficult times. I also would like to tell them that I have never betrayed them nor will I ever betray their trust.”
When media asked Babush whether it is a political conspiracy he said that “Let us not take this into any political situation thinking of advantage or disadvantage. I am not here to do that. This is just the bail I got and I am yet to clear my name from this rape case.”
According to the speculations in the media, while filing the case against Babush Moseratte police entirely remain dependent on the statement of the victim girl, they filed the case against Babush and remaining two accused under the children’s without cross checking the facts. They also applied the section of POSCO on Babush Monseratte while the Ossification test of the victim girl came showed her age above 17 & 18.
There are many such points that police investigation could not establish to the satisfaction of the court made this case weak from the victim’s side which ultimately resulted into the bail of Babush and other two accused.
According to the sources, Babush apparently went to all the temples and chapels around Panaji to take the blessings of the god for relieving him from this mess.
Babush will be appearing before the Panaji town police station for next seven days between 3pm to 7pm. We will keep you updating with the developments as it takes place. Meanwhile, you can leave your comments on this issue.
