More than a year after an accused in an acid attack case was directed to be taken into custody, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has asked the trial court to make a sincere endeavour for expeditious disposal of the case.

Justice Anil Kshetarpal's request to the trial court came while turning down the bail application of the accused, who had allegedly poured acid on his employee when he went to him for his dues. The victim had lost both his eyes in the alleged attack.

"As per the case of the prosecution, when the injured went to the petitioner to demand his dues, he poured acid resulting in severe burn injuries. The petitioner is an influential person and the police did not even register an FIR, although he is alleged to have committed a serious crime," Justice Kshetarpal added.

This was second petition for the bail pending trial in an FIR dated January 25, 2019, registered for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means under Section 326 of the IPC at Sadar Dhuri police station in Sangrur district.

The prosecution's case was the injured was working as a conductor-cum-driver of a truck owned by the petitioner. He went to the petitioner's house on July 22, 2011, at around 8:30 pm to settle his accounts and receive salary.

When he knocked at the door of the petitioner's house, he did not open the door immediately and asked the complainant to wait outside for two minutes. The petitioner, thereafter, went to the roof of his house and poured acid on the first informant.
