A sessions court will tomorrow pass an order on the bail application of suspended NCP leader Padamsinh Patil, arrested for his alleged involvement in the 2006 murder of Congress leader Pawanraje Nimbalkar.
This is the second time Patil has approached the Alibagh sessions court seeking bail since his arrest on June 7 this year.
Patil's first bail application was rejected by the court observing that there was prima facie case against him.
The CBI in its 5000-page chargesheet has named Patil as the prime accused to have hatched the conspiracy to murder Nimbalkar due to political and business rivalry.
Patil's lawyer V R Manohar today argued that Patil is entitled to be released on bail as the chargesheet has been filed and the question of the accused tampering with evidence does not arise.
"There is no evidence against Patil except for the confessional statement of a co-accused, Parasmal Jain, which is not admissible," Manohar argued.
CBI counsel, Ejaz Khan, however, opposed the bail stating that confessional statement is the strongest evidence for proving conspiracy.
"Apart from the confessional statements, the CBI has other evidence to prove Patil's involvement in the case," Khan said.
