Nilesh was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "Even though Singh was booked by Bangur Nagar police on charges of abetment to commit suicide among other charges, there are several suspicious elements in the case which were overlooked by the police. Hence, it is important that Singh should be tried on charges of murder, culpable homicide and forcing a woman to promote miscarriage or abortion and should be sentenced for imprisonment as prescribed in the law."
The special public prosecutor said that he tried his best to secure police custody for Singh during arguments. He also added that the police investigations are not upto the mark as many facts are hidden and were unobserved by the HC.
His letter said, "The court has failed to notice that the accused is involved in abeting the deceased to commit suicide. Instead of granting custodial interrogation, they awarded him bail."
