Murder accused in J&K National Conference leader TS Wazir approached High Court seeking bail
In the case of mysterious murder of the former member of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Council and senior National Conference leader Trilochan Singh Wazir in September 2021 in Delhi, the murder accused namely Balbir Singh Billa from Jammu has approached the Delhi High Court seeking bail stating that the case against him is fabricated and he is in custody since September 2021.
Advocate Harpreet Singh hora and Jasdeep Singh argued for the accused before the High Court that the investigation is complete and the weapon has been recovered and the accused is in custody since last 10 months. It was argued that the evidence is deficient in the case and the accused has been implicated falsely in the case. It is worthwhile to note that the main accused Harpreet Singh Khalsa is still absconding and Police is making efforts to arrest him.
The case was initially handled by the Moti Nagar Police Station and is now being dealt by the Crime Branch. National Conference leader Mr. Wazir, who was a former member of the J&K Legislative Council, chairman of J&K’s Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, and president of a transport union for the last three decades, had come to Delhi on September 2 from his residence in Jammu. The J&K police was also informed that Mr. Wazir was missing and they tried to locate him. The authorities also checked if he had boarded the flight to Canada but it turned out that he hadn’t and he was found dead in a building in West Delhi.
The High Court has directed the Crime Branch to file detailed report in the case and listed the matter in September.
