‘Harsh & Unjust’ : Gauhati High Court Sets Aside Bail Condition To Produce Govt Servant As Surety
Case: MOINUL HOQUE vs THE STATE OF ASSAM
Coram: HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE HITESH KUMAR SARMA
Case No: Crl.Pet./173/2021
Court Observation: “…this Court is of the view that surety of a government servant, as sought for, is too harsh for the petitioner that it would amount to refusal of bail as he wouldn’t be out on bail if required to produce a Government Servant as surety”.
“…this Court considers the condition that one of the sureties to be a government servant of Grade-III rank appears to be unjust and unfair and, therefore, the condition of one of the surety to be a government servant is set aside”
