On the Order dated, 3 September 2020, Majhar was released on bail. He was arrested in June 2020 for making explosives (five-country bombs) and was filed under the provisions of the Indian Explosive Act, 1903.

Background of the Case

On 12 June 2020, the applicant, Majhar akin Majhab, was arrested for having been made five-country bombs. These explosives were recovered from him. Resultantly, he was filed under Section 4 (Punishment for an attempt to cause an explosion, or for making or keeping explosive with intent to endanger life or property) and 5 (Punishment for making or possessing explosives under suspicious circumstances) of the Indian Explosive Act, 1908 at the Police Station (PS) of Nawabganj in Allahabad. He had been in the prison from June 2020. The present bail application was filed by Majhar.

Submissions Before the Court

The learned Counsel for Majhar had stated that the latter was falsely implicated on 13 June 2020 by the Police Officers of the Nawabganj PS, Allahabad. Furthermore, there were no public witnesses during the recovery of the explosive by the police. It was also mentioned that Majhar had no criminal record.
