No Relief for Former Noida Chief Engineer Yadav Singh, Court Denies Intervention

In a recent decision, the High Court has declined to provide relief to Yadav Singh, the former Chief Engineer of Noida. The Ghaziabad Special Court under the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) previously refused to accept his bail bond under Section 88, and the High Court has upheld this decision, stating that Singh is not entitled to the benefits of Section 88 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CRPC). Singh is now required to file a regular bail application.

The denial came from Justice Sanjay Kumar Singh, who dismissed Yadav Singh’s petition. An FIR was registered against Singh on January 13, 2012, in Gautam Buddha Nagar, alleging fraud, embezzlement, and corruption. The investigation was later handed over to the CBI by the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court. The CBI has since filed three charge sheets against Singh, including cases of possessing disproportionate assets, for which he previously received bail from the Supreme Court.

Following this, the CBI filed a supplementary charge sheet on a separate bond. Singh’s application for acceptance of a bail bond under Section 88 was rejected by the special court. He then challenged this decision in the High Court, which stated that if a non-bailable offense is charged and the accused’s anticipatory bail application has been denied, he cannot benefit from Section 88.
