The Supreme Court on Thursday extended till Monday the interim bail of former Gujarat minister and a convict in 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre case Maya Kodnani. A Bench led by Justice H L Dattu granted Kodnani exemption from surrendering and posted her plea for extension of bail on medical grounds for February 17.
Expected to pass some orders on extension of her bail, the court was constrained to adjourn the hearing after Kodnani’s counsel failed to file documents pertaining to the injuries she had suffered after falling on a burning lamp. The Bench had a day ago asked the counsel to adduce all the relevant documents so that the court could consider passing “some favourable” order in view of her medical conditions.
As the matter was getting adjourned, senior advocate Ram Jethmalani, appearing for Kodnani, requested the Bench to give her liberty from surrendering in the trial court after expiry of her interim bail period.

When asked, Gujarat government’s counsel Hemantika Wahi maintained that since Kodnani was in a hospital for treatment, the state did not want to oppose her request to extend the bail till Monday.
Kodnani has filed the petition challenging the February 8 order of the Gujarat High Court declining to extend her three-month temporary bail granted on medical grounds in November last. She had sought extension of bail by 180 days.
The trial court had in August 2012 awarded life imprisonment to Kodnani, Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi and 29 others for Naroda Patiya incident.
