New Delhi (ILNS): The Delhi High Court today took up the case of jail inmates misusing the court’s order of bail during Covid, granted on humanitarian grounds. The court also issued notice in an application seeking modification of its earlier order extending the interim bail of those prisoners till October 31.

A three-judge bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justices Siddharth Mridul and Talwant Singh directed the jail authorities to submit the latest data on number of COVID-19 positive inmates in jail and number of inmates out on interim bail. 

The plea has been filed by advocate Amit Prasad, Special Public Prosecutor for the Delhi riots, stating that a trial court has noted that the order providing interim bail to inmates amid COVID-19 is being misused by the inmates.

Prasad submitted that the accused are seeking interim bail on humanitarian grounds instead of regular bail in the cases under section 302 of IPC and are getting a regular extension of the same.

The bench will be hearing the matter on October 16.
