Sessions court refuses to stay Congress leader Sunil Kedar’s sentence, denies Bail


Mumbai, Dec 30 (UNI)- A sessions court in Nagpur on Saturday refused to stay the five-year sentence handed down to former Maharashtra Minister and Congress leader Sunil Kedar by a lower court last week in a bank scam case.

The court also turned down his plea for granting him bail. District Judge RS Patil passed an order after prosecution strongly opposed his pleas.

It may be recalled that on on December 22 a local court in Nagpur had sentenced Kedar and five others to five years’ rigorous imprisonment for misappropriation of funds at the Nagpur District Central Cooperative Bank (NDCCB) in 2002. Kedar was the Chairman of the bank when the scam came to light.

The former Minister was convicted under Sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating, 471 (whoever fraudulently or dishonestly uses as genuine any document which he knows or has reason to believe to be a forged document), 120(b) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of Indian Penal Code.
