    An anticipatory bail was granted to three Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs of Punjab on Wednesday by a Chandigarh court, which allowed them to leave the state ahead of the upcoming bypolls. The court said that it was giving the MLAs "a chance to explain their position and quell any suspicion" in the minds of the people about their involvement in alleged financial irregularities in the state's irrigation department.

  • Chandigarh court allows anticipatory bail to 3 AAP MLAs of Punjab

    A local court has granted anticipatory bail to three MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party, Punjab, in a two-year-old case registered against them by the Chandigarh Police.

    Gurmeet Singh Haher, Manjit Singh and Jai Krishan Singh approached the court for pre-arrest bail through counsel Ankur Chaudhrie.

    The Chandigarh Police had registered a case against 10 AAP leaders, including Bhagwant Mann, Gurmeet Singh Haher, Manjit Singh and Jai Krishan Singh, for allegedly pelting the police with stones during a demonstration held opposite the MLA hostel on January 10, 2020.

    The police alleged that the AAP workers, instigated by the leaders, pelted them with stones when they were stopped near the MLA hostel. The leaders were going towards the official residence of the Punjab Chief Minister when they were stopped due to the imposition of Section 144. Mann has already been granted pre-arrest bail by the court. While allowing the applications, the court directed them to join the investigation within next 10 days.

    Ankur Chaudhrie, counsel for the AAP leaders, argued that the applicants were members of the Punjab Legislative Assembly. The present FIR is an outcome of the political vendetta of the party in power just to attach a stigma to their reputation as the elections were due in near future. The police had registered the present FIR in haste without properly verifying the facts and the allegations levelled against them were purely a work of fiction.
