It said Zakir Jaffer spoke to the owner of the Therapy Works after the watchman’s report. No attempt was made to inform the police even after the Therapy Works were informed. The court remarked that the bail may be denied in certain circumstances even if the offence is bailable especially when there is a possibility that the accused can influence witnesses or tamper with the evidence.
