#BombayHighCourt issues notice in plea filed by Hansa Research Group challenging the harassment by the Crime Branch, Mumbai Police.

The Court asks Sr. Adv. Devdutt Kamat appearing for the Mumbai Police Commissioner to give their stand on this.

Sr. Adv. CS Vaidyanathan submits that it doesn’t make sense to call the employees everyday for interrogation.

Whatever documents they want, Hansa is ready to provide, he submitted.

Kamat: Milords, this petition is unfair to the Court. Kindly see the petition.
Court: Kamat, we will hear the petition. But in the interregnum, you can not call them everyday. They are complainants not the accused.

Kamat: The case papers of investigation were before Milords, so Milords. Knows that there is evidence against them
Court: We will examine all that, but do not call them everyday.

Kamat: Milords we are not harassing them, we will strictly investigate.

Court: We are saying, please do not harass them by calling them everyday. Please take instructions on when do you want him to appear.
Court: Like twice a day or thrice a week.

Kamat: Hansa should not dictate the timings.

Court: Yes but that does not mean you keep them from morning to evening. Keep some fixed timing till the next date of hearing.
Court: Either take instructions, or we will have to pass appropriate orders.

Kamat seeks time to get instructions till the end of the hearing today.

Court: Give relief to investigating officers too.

Matter kept back for instructions.
Kamat makes a statement that the employees will only be called twice a week till the next date of hearing of the petition till the next date of hearing.

Court records his statement and adds that the inquiry will be conducted for a reasonable period of time till the next date.

The court adds that they are only complainants, nothing will happen to them.

Respondents given liberty to file reply.
