The top court of the country has extended the house arrest of the arrested activists for four more weeks and directed them to pursue relief in the lower courts.
Earlier, giving an impression that no act of eliminating dissent with the support of police force would be tolerated, the Supreme Court of India directed the concerned who failed a serious case against the five renowned activists to present the entire case diary before the court to verify how a case of conflict transformed into an case of conspiracy against the country and whether the raids conducted in the houses of the activists were based on the concrete material evidences.
The top court of the country then warned that if they find no grounds for the charges levelled against the activists by the Maharashtra police in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon case, the entire case against the activist would be quashed.
All the arrested are renowned activists working in several sensitive issues, particularly those in which the ruling has a special interest, across the country.
The latest judgment clearly shows that there is enough material evidences to believe that the changes against the activists are not politically motivated.
It is a major victory for the Maharashtra police which since the beginning of the case have been arguing that there are enough evidences to support their action against the activists -poet Vara Vara Rao, advocate Sudha Bhardwaj, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves and Gautam Navlakha.
