New Delhi: A complaint by fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's alleged aide Khalil Ahmed, accusing a head warden Tihar jail, where he is lodged, of beating him and demanding bribe from him and other inmates, has been dismissed by a Delhi court.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Rajneesh Kumar Gupta dismissed Khalil's plea saying he could not produce any evidence to prove his "general allegations."

The sessions court's order came on Khalil's appeal against a magisterial court's order, which had earlier on March 25, last year had dismissed his complaint against him.

Khalil, arrested for his alleged role in an extortion case, had moved court for initiation of criminal proceedings against Head Warden Dilbagh Singh, for allegedly beating him and demanding bribe from him as well others.

He had said he had applied to the warden for his treatment in a hospital, but he refused his plea and demanded Rs 500 to allow him the favour.

 "Khalil in his complaint as well as in his testimony has not stated the time when he has given the application to the accused (warden). He has also not stated in his testimony as well as in his complaint what type of medical problem, he was facing on the date of alleged incident, for which he wanted treatment. His testimony is not supported by any reliable evidence on record," the ASJ said.

"Keeping in view the aforesaid judgments and the facts on record, I am of the opinion that there is no prima facie material on record to proceed against the accused Dilbagh
Singh," the judge said upholding the magisterial court order.
