Sanjeev Bhatt’s bail plea deffered to Friday

sanjeev-bhatAhmedabad: Sanjeev Bhatt would spend two more nights in jail as the the court deffered the hearing on his bail plea to Friday, October 7, 2011. Earlier in a setback for the Gujarat government the court rejected its demand to hear the remand application of Bhatt before his bail plea. The Gujarat government had on Tuesday challenged a magisterial court’s order denying Bhatt’s police remand.

Gujarat government had opposed the hearing on the grounds that Mr. Bhatt’s revision remand application was pending.The IPS officer had on Tuesday refused to compromise on a proposal from a sessions’ judge that if he went on remand for three hours, the court would later in the day hear his bail application.

“I cannot compromise with those goons. Whatever wrong the government wants to do I do not care. I will tolerate it,” Mr. Bhatt had said in the open court. Mr. Bhatt was arrested on September 30 in connection with an FIR filed against him by police constable K D Pant in June, for allegedly threatening him and making him sign false affidavits regarding a meeting called by Chief Minister Narendra Modi on February 27, 2002, hours after the Godhra train carnage.
