Naroda Patiya case: SC refuses to extend Maya Kodnani`s interim bail
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to extend the interim bail of former Gujarat
minister Maya Kodnani in the 2002 Naroda Patiya riots case.
During the previous hearing, the Supreme Court had extended the interim bail granted to her till today (Feb 24) on medical grounds but also made it clear that it won`t be further extended if she fails to file an affidavit stating the kind of burn injury she suffered.
The apex court, while rejecting the plea of her advocate Ram Jethmalani who pleaded for bail on the ground that she is suffering from suicidal impulse, asked him to file affidavit of burn injury that she suffered recently due to which it extended the interim bail twice.
"Don`t ask us to do what is impermissible in law. We have seen the photograph and we are not satisfied," a bench of justices HL Dattu and SA Bobde said, asking him to file affidavit giving details of her burn injury.
When Jethmalani pleaded for regular bail on ground of her mental condition, the bench said, "You should go back to custody and then seek regular bail."
The bench had earlier extended her interim bail which was expired on February 12 saying that "She is in a pitiable condition and she needs some relief."
It had directed her to file affidavit stating injury suffered by her.
