SC rejects bail plea of Mahender Singh Yadav in 1984 riots case
New Delhi, Jul 1 : Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a plea for an interim bail to Mahender Singh Yadav, former MLA and co-convict of ex-Congress MP Sajjan Kumar in 1984 anti Sikh riots case.
“We are not inclined to give any interim relief at this stage in the case to the petitioner (Mahender Singh Yadav),” a bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and BR Gavai said while hearing a plea seeking bail on the ground that the convict is corona positive.
The Apex Court said that he (Mahender Singh Yadav) was being given the treatment in hospital where no relative is allowed.
In 2013, Yadav along with ex-MLA Kishan Khokkar were found guilty of rioting and were sentenced to three years in prison in the case.
Justice Banerjee said, everything possible is being done for the treatment of the petitioner. The family has no grievance related to the treatment. There is no other specific suggestion forthcoming from the family which they wish to take. The application cannot be entertained.
“No differential treatment cannot meted out to a patient just because he is under detention. Plea dismissed,” the Apex Court said and refuses to give any relief to the petitioner.
