The Barpeta court had pulled up the state authorities for lodging a “false FIR” versus Jignesh Mevani.

The Gauhati High Court on Monday said the observations made by a Barpeta court in its order providing bail to Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani for allegedly assaulting a lady policeman “crossed its restrictions” and also “demoralised” the law enforcement agency and also the federal government of Assam.

Justice Debashis Barua, listening to an application filed by the Assam federal government testing the monitorings made by Barpeta Area and Procedure Court Aparesh Chakraborty, however, did not pass any type of viewpoint on the give of bond to Mr Mevani, a Dalit leader and an Independent legislator supported by the Congress.

The Barpeta court had actually pulled up the state police for lodging a “incorrect FIR” versus Mr Mevani and also asked for the high court to think about directing the Assam Authorities to “stop enrollment of false FIR like the present situation and the authorities employees firing as well as killing or harming accused which has come to be a routine sensation in the state”.

The observations are past the jurisdiction of the reduced court, Justice Barua claimed.

As the court was closed on Monday because of a holiday, Advocate General Devajit Saikia took unique permission to test the order of the district court.

The matter will again turn up for hearing on May 27.

Mr Mevani was arrested by Assam Authorities first on April 19 from Palanpur community in Gujarat after an FIR was registered against him in Kokrajhar for his tweet on the prime minister.

After a Kokrajhar court gave him bail in the event on April 25, he was revealed as rearrested for presumably attacking the female law enforcement agent while he was being brought by a cops posse from Guwahati to Kokrajhar 4 days back.

The Barpeta court approved bond to Mr Mevani in this instance on a Personal Recognisance (PR) bond of 1,000 in the event submitted at the Barpeta Roadway police station.
