MAPUSA: The Mapusa Additional Sessions Court today has dismissed the legal proceeding in the anticipatory bail filed by Deputy Sarpanch of Anjuna Panchayat Agnes D’Souza.
The court closed the proceeding as applicant Agnes did not appear before the court for the last 3 hearings.
Agnes had filed an anticipatory bail application contending that she fears arrest by CBI as she had worked in the kitchen of Curlies Club for the last 12 years, where Haryana’s BJP leader and social media star Sonali Phogat was allegedly murdered.
The BJP leader was brought dead to the St Anthony’s Hospital at Anjuna in the wee hours of August 23 after she spent the previous night at Curlies’ beach shack, a beachfront nightclub, where she was allegedly drugged with methamphetamine (MDMA) by Sangwan and Singh, who accompanied her to the club.
According to the CBI chargesheet, Sangvan and Singh have been charged under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) read with Section 34 (common intention) and 36 [effect (in this case death) caused partly by act and partly by omission.
Both Sudhir P Sangvan and Sukhvender Singh, Phogat’s manager and his assistant, respectively, have been accused of murdering the BJP leader and have been charged under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
CBI took over the probe from the Goa police in early September after the state government acceded to demands from Phogat’s family and wrote to the Union government seeking that the case is transferred over to the CBI.
