More than 50 personnel are stationed outside the Central Jail along with the officers.
- Was jailed for making objectionable remarks on Hindu deity in comedy show
Comedian Munawwar Farooqui, who was jailed for more than a month for making objectionable remarks on Hindu deities during the comedy show, could not be released on Saturday. After getting bail from the Supreme Court on Friday, the lawyer along with family members reached the jail on Saturday and completed all the procedures for his exit. Family members had also deposited a sum of 50 thousand rupees.
At 7 pm, suddenly a police force of more than 50 was posted outside the jail. Additional AC and CSP, TI also reached the spot. In such a situation, speculations started that there was definitely a screw in the release. According to sources, the screw is stuck in the release regarding the case going on in other places of Farooqui. Farooqui’s cousin brother Jeth Pathan said that the lawyers are doing their work. The process of jail administration will be released only after the completion. Vivek Tankha, counsel for Munawar Farooqui in the case, said that the attitude of this jail administration is completely in violation of the order of the Supreme Court. The jail administration is acting at the behest of politics. This is the declining level of governance behavior.
Tukoganj TI Kamlesh Sharma and CSP Harish Motwani were also present on the occasion.
The special thing is that the Supreme Court had issued notices to the state government giving interim bail in just 11 minutes of hearing. On behalf of Farooqi, Senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhary had approached the Supreme Court. He told the court that the police have no such evidence, in which Farooqui is seen commenting. A case was made against him on the basis of just and heard things and the High Court also rejected the bail application without examining the facts. A division bench of Justice Rohington Fali Nariman, Justice BR Gavai, heard the matter.
Farooqui’s brother Jeth Pathan is also present outside the jail premises.
Farooqui has been in judicial custody since 1 January. After dismissing the bail application from the High Court, the apex court moved. The Supreme Court also stayed the production warrant issued from Uttar Pradesh against Farooqui, giving the benefit of interim bail. Notices have also been issued to the government. Farooqui also challenged the registration of an FIR. In SLP, he (Farooqui) had joined the show. No comment was made by him. The government has to submit the reply in 4 weeks.
