Hardik never incited violence, lawyer says while seeking bail
Seeking bail for jailed OBC quota agitation leader Hardik Patel, his lawyer on Friday argued in the High Court here that his client never instigated the people to resort to violence and had in fact appealed for peace.
Justice AJ Desai is hearing Hardik’s bail plea. The young Patel leader is facing sedition cases in Ahmedabad and Surat.
Advocate Bharda said Ahmedabad police misinterpreted Hardik’s speech at the GMDC ground rally here on August 25 last year where he invoked freedom-fighter Bhagat Singh ‘who threw a bomb at the British’.
