Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Friday said that his government “respects” the Supreme Court’s decision of granting bail to activist Binayak Sen, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for sedition by Chhatisgarh High Court.
“We respect the decision given by Supreme Court,” Mr. Singh said.
“We have always respected any court’s decision and we will continue to do that,” the chief minister of the BJP ruled State said.
A bench comprising Justices H.S. Bedi and C.K. Prasad of the apex court in New Delhi passed the order on the petition moved by Dr. Sen challenging the order of Chhattisgarh High Court denying him bail.
“Supreme Court has only granted him the bail. The pending legal process will continue in High Court at Bilaspur.
Ehatever the final verdict be, we will respect that decision too,” Mr. Singh said.
In its order, the Supreme Court said it was giving no reason for granting bail to 61-year-old Sen and left it to the satisfaction of the trial court concerned to impose the conditions for his release on bail.
