The court listened to the SG for a while, before Senior Advocate Kalyan Bandopadhyay, appearing for the state, said that while the SG’s contentions were going on, his clients remained hanging under house arrest.
The bench asked the SG against which order had the SLP has been filed. To which the SG said that as far as he recalls, it was against the order of Justice Arijit Banerjee, allowing interim bail, and also the order of the division bench allowing house arrest of the TMC leaders.
The case involves senior ministers and MLAs of the Trinamool Congress who have been left hanging through an interment order issued by the CBI, and a stay on the bail order for all four, issued by the high court.
The additional public prosecutor argued that the death could have been caused by inflicting a blow on the head of victim, and hence the autopsy report of surgeon does not substantiate any such assessment.
The Division bench of the Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee also noticed “that the applicant was on bail throughout the trial. It is nobody’s case that the applicant jumped the bail or breached any condition of bail.”
The Division Bench of Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Arijit Banerjee has passed this order while hearing a Writ Petition filed against construction of a pay-and-use toilet being set up in a children's park.
The Bench of Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Arijit Banerjee was hearing a case of a missing girl. A report has been filed by the Inspector-in-Charge of Arambagh Police Station, dated December 10, 2020, but there is no indication therein as to the whereabouts of the missing girl.
