An Indian court here has rejected bail plea by a Polish fugitive whose extradition is sought by Germany for his alleged role in a murder case, reported the local daily The Pioneer on Monday.

"The offense is grave in nature and is extraditable.. The fugitive criminal is not entitled to ked any leniency of bail and his bail application is dismissed," the reported quoted a judge at a Delhi court as saying on Sunday.

The court allowed the plea of Naveen Kumar Matta, counsel for the Ministry of External Affairs, that the bail plea of a fugitive criminal can be entertained only after the conclusion of extradition proceedings.

The court has now fixed the matter for recording additional evidence to be produced by the Ministry of External Affairs, which is pursuing the extradition inquiry at the request of Germany.

Adam Piotr Mancie, 43, is accused of gunning down Friedhelm Sodenkamp on Nov. 3, 2008, at Berlin Mitter city center. The Pole was given 25,000 euros by a co-accused for committing the offense, said the report.

Mancie has been arrested by Indian police in Goa, western India, after the Germany authorities has sought his extradition.
