Court adjourns bail plea due to absence of accused


The district and sessions court judge AnujaPrabhudesai on Wednesday refused to take up hearing on the anticipatory bail applications of the two accused in last weekend's stabbing incident at Baga, as they were not present in the court.
The matter has now been posted for hearing on Thursday morning, according to sources.
Two accused, Alister Zakaria from Revora and Caitan D'Souza from Chandel, Pernem, have approached the court apprehending arrest by police.
The two tourists from Rajasthan, Krishna Kumar Soni, 26 and Sonu Soni, 21, had got into an argument with the two accused outside a popular nightclub in Tito's lane at around 3.45am on January 19. The injured tourists were admitted to the Goa medical college hospital, Bambolim, where one was operated upon, while the second person was discharged after receiving treatment. [TOI]
