Dwarka court grants interim relief to Congress leader Pawan Khera

On Thursday, the Dwarka court granted interim bail to Congress leader, Pawan Khera, following a order passed by the Apex Court. Khera was arrested at the Delhi Airport by the Assam Police in a case related to an alleged remark against PM Modi.

The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Archana Beniwal, granted interim bail to the Congress leader on a furnishing bond of Rs. 30,000. The court granted the relief after considering the order passed by the SC earlier in the day.

While granting the interim bail, the court also imposed some conditions. The court granted relief after hearing the submissions made by Randeep Surjewala and the Assam Police. The Assam police sought the transit remand of Pawan.

Advocate Randeep submitted to the court that Assam police have not complied with the guidelines of the Arnesh Kumar case. He submitted that the grounds of arrest have not been provided and communicated.

He also said, “I am the pairokar of the person being detained by the police. The matter was taken up today by the Chief Justice of India (CJI). CJI passed an order stating that the person be released on interim bail. CJI was very gracious to pass the order.”
