Gujarat HC grants temporary bail to Babu Bajrangi
Gujarat HC on Thursday granted two-day temporary bail to Babu Bajrangi, sentenced to life imprisonment in the 2002 Naroda Patiya riot case, as his wife is undergoing a surgery. A division bench of Justices MR Shah and SH Vora allowed Bajrangi’s plea, filed and argued by his son Viren Babubhai Patel. He would be out of jail on 20 and 21 April. A trial court had last year held Bajrangi guilty as the main conspirator of Naroda Patiya massacre, in which 97 people were killed. Bajrangi’s application said his wife Meena Patel had been diagnosed with a tumour in the uterus and for the operation his signature is must.
