One after another setback for themWhen the previous Chief Justice retired, they were very elated. The reason of their elation is well-known. But what is happening now? One after another setback for them.
1. The Supreme Court had rejected an appeal for an urgent hearing of a review petition filed by so-called historian Romila Thapar in the case of the arrests of five 'Urban Naxals' for their alleged role in the Bhima Koregaon violence.
2. The Pune Sessions Court day before yesterday rejected bail plea of Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira and Sudha Bhardwaj, who were arrested in August for their alleged involvement in Elgaar Parishad and also in the Bhima Koregaon violence.
3. The house arrest of all the three aforestated accused is over. The Pune police can now take them into custody and produce them in the court for additional interrogation. On last Thursday, the Hyderabad High Court had extended house arrest of activist Varavara Rao by three weeks.
4. However, very unfortunately, the fifth accused, Gautam Navlakha was released from the house arrest by Delhi High Court on 1st October, 2018. The prosecutors must appeal before the concerned Court to send this criminal in the company of his above-mentioned four friends.
Waiting to know further development of this case. Waiting to know the fate of these poisonous anti-nationals.
