 Earlier, the Allahabad High Court had stayed the bail order granted by a sessions court to former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati in a rape case.

The order was passed by Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale on an application moved by the state government through Additional Advocate General V K Shahi seeking cancellation of bail granted to Prajapati and two other co-accused in the case.

Shahi had submitted that sufficient time was not given by the sessions court to the prosecution for seeking instructions against the accused.

He had further contended that in his bail application, Prajapati had stated that he had no criminal case pending against him but six cases were pending against him.
