New Delhi, Sep 18 (PTI) A Delhi court has cancelled the bail of a man for not joining the investigation, saying he was trying to take advantage of the relief assuming law cannot catch up with him.

The judge said if an accused is allowed to not comply with court's directives and court has to ask him every time to obey the summons, the purpose of imposing conditions for grant of bail will be defeated and investigation suffer.

Additional Sessions Judge Aparna Swami said the accused frequently chose to ignore the summons without any intimation to the investigating officer (IO) of his absence and there was ample material to show he was elusive since his release on bail.
