SC Releases Varun on Parole

In Pilibhit hate speech case, the Supreme Court has granted two weeks parole to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi. The UP government had arrested and later booked him under the stringent National Security Act (NSA) in March for giving the communally charged speeches.

It should be mentioned that Varun, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Pilibhit, submitted an undertaking to Etah Court yesterday, pledging to refrain from making hate speeches. The court forwarded the undertaking to the apex court.

According to the information, Varun will be released from Etah jail on Thursday evening. A bench of Chief Justice K G Balakrishanan, Justice P Sathasivam and Justice J M Panchal ordered Varun’s release, pending a final decision on his lawsuit challenging his detention under NSA.

The bench ordered Varun’s temporary release dismissing the Uttar Pradesh government’s stiff opposition.

As per the court’s order, Varun would be released on Thursday after submitting an affidavit to Etah jail authorities, affirming that he will not make provocative speeches during the poll campaign. He would be filing an identical affidavit later to the Supreme Court by Monday.

The court order will enable him to file his nomination papers and campaign for elections.
