2. The case of applicant/petitioner is that he is an American Citizen and

qualified Software Engineer by profession. He has worked in some of the

world’s biggest organizations on very senior positions. He has his roots in

the society and is not a prior convict. He is a law abiding citizen of the

Bail Appln.3906/2020 Page 1 of 10
country and is innocent.

3. Learned counsel for the petitioner submitted that the screenshot

annexed by the complainant seems to have been taken by herself, thus, are

tampered and forged with an intention to falsely implicate the

applicant/petitioner. The IO has confirmed in his status report that he has

taken a report from WhatsApp officials in which WhatsApp has only

verified that the number belongs to the applicant. The applicant has never

denied that the mobile number belongs to him. He is using this mobile

number for the last 9 years. At the same time, WhatsApp has not verified

that the alleged status was uploaded from the applicant mobile on

16.02.2020. So there is no admissible facts about the applicant posting the

alleged WhatsApp status. Moreover, the WhatsApp status remains only for

24 hours and gets deleted automatically by the WhatsApp application

thereafter.
