Right of petitioner to interim bail

A bench of Supreme Court Justice BR Gavai and Justice Sanjay Karol issued notice to the Assam government and others and asked them to file their reply in the matter by July 10. The bench said- We have read the statement given under section 164 of CrPC, which has been graciously placed before us by the prosecution. We do not want to say anything against the state at this stage. He said- considering the delay of one month in registering the FIR, the petitioner is entitled to interim bail.

Instructions to appear before the police on May 22

The Supreme Court also directed B Vishrinivas to cooperate in the investigation and appear before the police on 22 May.
