The District and Sessions Judge Gokulesh rejected his bail plea moved after his surrender yesterday, saying it cannot be granted as he was involved in a heinous crime.

The prosecution said the accused, Jogender Yadav, and his other associates shot dead a jeweller and looted his on August 25, 1999.

The police had filed a case against several people and as the former constable was absconding, his case was separated from others.
