#BombayHighCourt will pronounce its verdict today in the plea filed by #BhimaKoregaon accused Dr. Varavara Rao seeking bail on medical grounds.

Bench of Justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale will render the verdict.


Bench has assembled. Pronouncement will begin shortly.
Pronouncement begins.
Justice Shinde: With all humility and human considerations, we are of the opinion that this is a fit case for allowing the relief.
Justice Shinde: We feel that with the condition of the under trial, it would be inappropriate to send him back. It would be appropriate to impose such conditions.
Justice Shinde: The undertrial is to be released on bail for a period of 6 months.
Justice Shinde directs that Rao has to stay within the jurisdiction of the Special NIA Court.

He would not indulge in any activities or similar activities which led to the registering of the FIR.
Justice Shinde: On the completion of the 6 months Rao has to report back to Taloja Prison.

ASG seeks for a stay of 3 weeks.
Justice Shinde rejects the prayer on the ground that Nanavati has declared him fit to be released and since he cannot be sent to prison, he has to be released.
Justice Shinde: Rao has to attend trial whenever necessary, but can apply for exemption from physical appearance.

Justice Shinde: We are of the opinion that this is a genuine and fit case to grant relief or else we will be abdicating our constitutional duties as protector of human rights and right to health covered under right to life of article 21 of the constitution.
Justice Shinde: We feel that although material on record does show that the health condition of undertrial is precarious, we feel that sending him back to where he belongs is fraught with the risk of his presence being used by those allegedly associated with him.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul led bench decides to refer question on whether to count the day of remand for calculating time limit of 60 days for default bail & Whether chargesheet filed within the prescribed time period to a 3-judge bench. (,@dir_ed
Vs Kapil Wadhawan) #SupremeCourt Image
#SupremeCourt says question of interim bail to be considered at the earliest by the three judge bench.

Justice Kaul-- it may not be open for a 2 judge bench to consider these issues.

Singhvi-- they have been in jail for over 11 months. The legal issue is open.
@DrAMSinghvi : When a conflict in law is there the decision should be in favour of the accused.

Justice Kaul-- a larger bench must consider this issue. We will request CJI to constitute a bench at the earliest. The conflict may be capable of resolution by a 3 judge
