The Gujarat High Court rejected the petition of Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) seeking stay on the bail order granted to former BJP minister Maya Kodnani on Wednesday. The court rejected the petition since the bail order had already been executed by the time the matter came up for the hearing.
When asked whether the SIT got late for filing the petition senior lawyer Prashant Desai denied it and said the petition was filed at 11:30 AM. According to sources at Sabarmati Central Jail Kodnani was released from the jail at 1:30 in the afternoon.
Desai said that this is not the end of the road and SIT can challenge the order in the Supreme Court. However, he said the decision in this regard has to be taken by the state government.
