This may happen only in Modi’s Gujarat

Complaint against riot cases lawyers!, Rally in support of accused Swami Aseemanand!

Bar Council of Gujarat has received a complaint from Naroda Patiya case lawyer Premchand Tiwari demanding action against five advocates associated with post-Godhra riot cases. Tiwari in his complaint has named five lawyers including Jan Sangharsh Manch’s Mukul Sinha, Shamshad Khan Pathan and Sohel Tirmizi. Demanding cancellation of membership of these five lawyers, Tiwari has alleged that these lawyers filed tampered affidavits of witnesses in riot case. According to J.J.Patel, President of Bar Council of Gujarat, the decision on this will be taken in Bar Council’s meeting.
A protest rally was held in south Gujarat’s Tapi and Dang districts protesting Swami Asimanand’s arrest by the central investigating agency. The rally kicked off at Songadh’s Gayatri mandir. About 50 vehicles, full with tribal youths, joined the rally. Youths shouted slogans against central government for ‘framing’ Swami Asimanand under ‘fake charges’.The rally ended at Shri Shabaridham Ashram of Swami Asimanand.
