Assam: Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani granted bail.


Guwahati: A neighborhood court in Assam’s Kokrajhar on Monday allowed bail to Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani.

Kokrajhar Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court granted bail to MLA Jignesh Mevani in the case of tweeting on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Mevani was arrested by a team of Assam police from Palanpur in Gujarat on Thursday after a local BJP leader from Kokrajhar lodged a complaint against him.
This is a conspiracy of BJP and RSS. They did this to tarnish my image. They have been doing this systematically. They did it with Rohit Vemula, they did it with Chandrasekhar Azad, now they are targeting me, “Mevani told reporters on Monday.

Mevani has been charged with criminal conspiracy, a crime involving a place of worship, inciting religious sentiment, and inciting a violation of peace.

In his complaint, BJP leader Arup Kumar Dey alleged that Mevani’s tweets were “likely to provoke a section of people belonging to a particular community”.
