New Delhi, Oct 28: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh backing his latest tweet on Indian judiciary on Friday said the judiciary should be a little liberal about those people, who are languishing in jail in spite if the fact that they have not been convicted as yet.
“All over the country there are hundreds and thousands of poor people, who are undergoing trial and in spite of the fact that they have not been convicted as yet, they are in jail. So, I think the judiciary should be little liberal of this,” said Singh, when asked to comment on his new tweet that judiciary should be a cue from what happened to Rajat Gupta and give under trials a bail after they are charge sheeted.
Responding to a question on whether he was also talking about the 2G accused, Digvijay Singh said: “I am not talking about that.”
Digvijay Singh had on Friday posted a tweet on Indian judiciary and asked it to take a cue from the Rajat Gupta case in the US and grant bail to under trials.
“Good to know Rajat Gupta got bail. Would our Judiciary also take a cue and not keep under trials in lock-up once they are charge-sheeted,” he tweeted.
Rajat Gupta, an iconic figure in US corporate sector, who was arrested on charges of passing insider information to his billionaire friend Raj Rajaratnam while he was director at Goldman Sachs and Procter and Gamble, was released on Thursday on a USD 10 million bond. (ANI)
