Naroda Patiya riot unparalleled, says HC

 
The court also said such incidents undermined the “foundation of law.”

The hard-hitting observations were made recently by Justice Abhilasha Kumari, while rejecting the bail application of one Subhashchandra Darji, an accused in the Naroda Patiya riot case. He was arrested by the Supreme Court appointed Special Investigation Team in November last year.

“The present case is not comparable with any ordinary case. The background of the case and its effect on the public cannot be overlooked,” the court said.

“In fact, it is a case of wanton,  mass carnage, almost unparallelled, in modern society. Such offences invariably have a negative impact upon the larger interest of the public and the State and undermine the very foundation upon which the edifice of rule of law is built,” it observed.
