Anticipatory bail for Alagiri’s son

Dayanithi Alagiri.
The Hindu Dayanithi Alagiri.

The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Monday quashed the non-bailable warrant issued against Durai Dhayanidhi, son of Union Minister M.K. Alagiri, and granted him anticipatory bail in cases registered against him for alleged involvement in the granite quarrying scam.

Justice C.T. Selvam, however, asked him to surrender his passport to the Judicial Magistrate and directed him to appear at the Keelavalavu police station every day until further orders. His earlier plea for anticipatory bail was dismissed by Justice T. Mathivanan on September 25.

The law may grant anticipatory bail. But I don't see how bail or otherwise would have affected the risks of evidence. As the person granted bail is from an influential family, much of the deeds would have been to look as legal, his absence does not affect the failure of this case.

The judiciary must disclose the legal grounds for granting bail, while
it was denied for more than seven months. What had changed now to isssue
a bail. Or was this bail issued under duress by the court! A
clarification by Justice Selvam will be perfect because equal justice
under the law in this banana democracy!

At last Mr,Alagiri's son got the anticipatory bail from a court.Now Dhayanithi Alagri should come forward and should help the prosecution as to how he and his business partners are innocents and if they are not innocent they should come forward to deposit the ill gotten money to the Govt with interest or otherwise they should be ready to be punished as per law.

At least now the Honble Union minister's son will come
out of his absconding position. One way of helping the
police dept to make the person at least appear to
surrender his passport and to fulfil the legal requirements.
I wonder whether the same type of justice will be rendered
for a common man if he or she has committed a serious lapse
as per the govt officials findings?

hats off to judicial system.this person has been absconding for more than two months.
if he has not some fraud , why should he abscond?now pathetically, court gives him bail.that is why judges are suspected in the eyes of the people.sure very soon the next court will cancel the bail.
