Calcutta High court stayed the bail granted to four Trinamool Congress in the Narada case after an extraordinary sitting on May17.
The vacation bench comprising Justices Vineet Saran and BR Gavai was hearing an appeal filed by CBI against a Division Bench order of the of the Calcutta High Court allowing house-arrest of the four TMC leaders in Narada Scam case.
Solicitor General urged the Supreme Court to transfer the matter outside the state as the High court as reduced it to a simple case.
Objection by the Bench,
They are already in house arrest. You are accusing the HC. Special Benches during Vacation are assigned to give liberty. This is the first time we are seeing that they are being used to take away liberty.
The Court repeatedly said that the “liberty of a person is the first thing to be seen” and suggested to the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to withdraw the case.
