by a Sessions Court.
Quashing the order issued by the Chennai City Police
Commissioner as the incident created a furore among the
people, the High court held that there had been unexplained
and inordinate delay caused by authorities in considering
a representation from his father.
After the court quashed the Goondas act, Daswant filed
a bail plea at the Chengalpattu Sessions Court, which
granted him bail last evening and was expected come out
of prison soon.
The young girl was reported missing and the Mangadu
police during investigations, recovered the burnt body of
the girl near a bush in Pallavaram.
Police arrested 22-year-old Daswant, an engineer, who
was the girl's neighbour for raping and killing the girl.
Police said Daswant, after ascertaining that her parents
were away, had on February five lured the child while she
was playing outside her house and raped her.
When the girl screamed, her killed her, hid her body in
his house for a day, took it in a travel bag and threw it
under a bridge.
The next day he went to the spot and burnt the body.
