The accused was arrested outside the courtroom after the bench announced its verdict.

A lawyer representing the accused said his client was implicated in a bogus case of theft of pigeons and requested the court to grant him bail.

On the other hand, the complainant’s lawyer said that the petitioner stole his client’s pigeons through a deceit, and therefore, he doesn’t deserve bail.
