The Supreme Court has granted bail to Dr. Anand Rai, the whistleblower of the Vyapam scam. He was facing charges under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. The case is related to the attack on the vehicle of Ratlam-Jhabua MP Gumansingh Damor. In this connection, Dr. Anand Rai was in jail since 15th November.
A bench headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has granted bail based on the terms and conditions of the trial court. The Madhya Pradesh High Court had rejected the bail plea of Anand Rai, which was challenged in the Supreme Court. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal appeared for Anand Rai while the petition was filed by advocate-on-record Sumir Sodhi.
Case was registered in Ratlam
Vikas Pargi in Bilpank of Ratlam district has committed offenses under IPC sections 294, 341, 353, 332, 146, 147, 336, 506 and SC/ST Act sections 3(1)(d), 3(1)(s) and 3 (2) (a) had filed a complaint under. An FIR was lodged on this on 15 November 2022. It is alleged that while returning from Vikas Birsa Munda Jayanti celebrations, MP Damor, MLA and Collector were behind in the convoy. They were stopped by some activists of JAIS organization and pelted stones. Due to this the collector’s gunman got injured. The names of 40-50 attackers including Anand Rai were mentioned in the complaint.
Case registered under political hatred
Dr. Anand Rai had said in his petition that there was no specific allegation against him under the SC/ST Act. Even after this, due to political malice, this FIR was registered and arrested. The Indore Bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court had refused to grant bail on 12 December. The petition alleged that the government and officials were taking revenge for exposing the Vyapam scam and false cases were registered.
