Gujarat HC refuses to cancel anticipatory bail. On April 5, 2006 the Gujarat High Court passed a speaking order rejecting the Gujarat state’s appeal to cancel anticipatory bail granted by the Sessions court at Godhra. Though one of the conditions of the High Court order of April 5, 2006, formally allowed the police to apply for remand (an practice in all cases) and the victims and Shri Khan remained present at Lunawada court while arguments took place on April 17, 2006, the single-handed vindictiveness of the Gujarat police can be seen in that they obtained non-bailable warrants by misleading the court despite the fact that there were no orders asking these persons to remain present in court on April 18, 2006.
