Concern over delay in getting certified copies of bail order in Tura case

Shillong, Oct 8: The relatives of activist Jaynie Sangma have expressed concern over not getting the certified copies of the order of the lower court in Tura after her bail applications were rejected thrice.

The family members said they wanted to move the High Court for bail but are not able to do that for long as they are yet to get the certified copies of the order even after two months.


Out of the seven women arrested, three, including, Jaynie, who is in Tura jail, are yet to get bail.

Only 15 more days are left for the police to file chargesheet but we are at a loss, said the husband of Jaynie.

The activist was arrested on July 26 for allegedly ‘inciting violence’ in Tura through social media.

The husband said she only posted in a group asking women to come forward.

Soon after the arrest, the then West Garo Hills SP Vivekanand Singh Rathore had said that she was involved in inciting violence which resulted in the incident of attempted attack on Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on July 24 in Tura.

Jaynie was recently lodged in NEIGRIHMS and Tura Civil Hospital as she was unwell.

Police have arrested 52 persons till date involved in the incident and they were placed under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act which is usually slapped on terrorists.

The Opposition TMC member Mukul Sangma had criticised the MDA-2 government for allegedly abusing the anti-terror law against the protestors by saying that the government is treating everyone as a terrorist.
