Order on Sanjiv Bhatt’s plea reserved
PTI AHMEDABAD A LOCAL court on Tuesday reserved the order on Gujarat government’s remand revision application of arrested IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, for October 7. The state government had on Monday challenged in the sessions court, a magisterial court order denying remand of Bhatt, arrested for allegedly threatening and forcing a constable to sign a false affidavit. Sessions Judge GN Patel hearing the case reserved the order after hearing both the parties. During the hearing Bhatt’s lawyer I H Sayed contended that the revision remand application of the state government was not maintainable in law. He cited Supreme Court judgement which said that granting or rejecting of remand was an interlocutory order and there cannot be revision of that order as per section 397(2) of the CrPC. Sayed said in view of the apex court judgement, the government application is not maintainable and should be rejected. On the government side, public prosecutor Pravin Trivedi argued that the state government has right to seek revision of the remand once it is rejected.
