Ahmedabad: A local court will hear the bail plea of Patel quota agitation spearhead Hardik Patel and two of his aides tomorrow in a sedition case as the matter was adjourned today.
Additional Sessions Judge N G Dave adjourned the hearing in the case today.
Hardik and his aides Dinesh Bambhaniya and Chirag Patel, who are facing sedition charges and are presently lodged in jail, had filed their bail application last month. In the bail plea, the trio had alleged that the FIR against them is fabricated and the quota agitation led by them does not amount to sedition, as charged in the FIR against him by the city crime branch on October 21.
In response to the bail application of these Patidar Anamant Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leaders, the city crime branch had filed an affidavit in the court on November 26 and opposed their bail plea. In the affidavit, the crime branch alleged that all the accused are facing serious charges and evidences collected till date proves their active involvement in committing the crime of inciting Patel community youths to resort to violence.
