Gujarat Police have arrested at least 40 people in Kutch district after three cases were filed to probe the violence that broke out on Sunday which allegedly left one man dead and several others injured, including policemen. The arrests have been made on charges of murder, rioting, arson and conspiracy among others.

On Sunday, violent clashes broke out between two communities when a group of Vishwa Hindu Parishad organized Rath Yatra, in which, the mob were raising provocative slogans against a particular community leading to clashes with swords and sticks and arson.

The incident happened when a VHP mob were passing through a mosque and started to raise the slogan that provoked another community for violence. The rally was organized to raise funds for the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

The police said that the group had no permission for organising rath yatra. Later, the police were used tear gas shells to control the situation. Superintendent of Police, Kutch (East), Mayur Patil said after the rally, the body of a migrant worker from Jharkhand was found about 200 metres from the clash site in Kidana village. The police are trying to ascertain if he was killed as part of that violence, the police said.

Similar clashes have been reported at Ram Mandir fund collection rallies from different parts of the country, including Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, Ujjain and Mandsaur districts.

Recently, Congress’s Digvijaya Singh wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi warning of similar clashes. He wrote in his letter that carrying lathis and swords and raising slogans to incite a community cannot be a part of any religious ceremony. Such developments cannot be part of the Hindu religion which damaged the social harmony of the country, he said.

Supreme Court issues notice to CBI, ED on Manish Sisodia bail plea

Manish Sisodia

The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the bail pleas moved by former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

The Supreme Court’s decided to issue notice to the two agencies after arguments on Sisodia’s petitions for bail in two cases relating to alleged irregularities in the now-scrapped Delhi liquor policy. The court granted two weeks to the agencies to file their views.

“Views of agencies have to be heard before any decision is taken,” said Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, pointing at the seriousness of the charges slapped on Sisodia. The former Delhi Deputy CM has been under judicial remand since February 2023 over corruption and money laundering charges.

According to Sisodia’s counsel, the charges against him are politically motivated and lack enough evidence. The counsel had sought bail on medical grounds, to which the CBI or ED objected, saying his release might hamper the ongoing investigation into the case by influencing the witnesses or tampering with evidence.

According to the CBI and ED, Sisodia’s involvement in the liquor policy scheme was responsible for substantial state revenue loss and worked in favor of private liquor vendors.

Manish Sisodia, known for his transformational work in the field of education under the Delhi government, is not the only Aam Aadmi Party leader in jail. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Satyendar Jain are also behind bars. While Kejriwal is jailed in connection with the liquor policy case, Jain is in prison for corruption charges.
