Jha gets temporary relief from apex court

By Raju Das

SHILLONG, July 24 � After the Meghalaya High Court rejected his anticipatory bail application, Chandra Mohan Jha has got a temporary relief from the Supreme Court which posted that if Jha is arrested he would be released on bail till the next date of hearing.

The apex court heard the Counsels of the petitioner Jha and issued notice to the Government of Meghalaya to respond. It posted that �in the event the petitioner is arrested in connection with the FIR CID case No. 2 (4) of 2013 under section 420, 406/466; he (Jha) will be released on bail to the satisfaction of the arresting authorities.�

The order was issued by Justice AK Patnaik and Justice MY Eqbal on July 19. Jha was represented by senior advocate Uday U Lalit and others.

On April 26 this year, former Governor RS Mooshahary first filed an FIR against the University, as a Visitor, for allegedly issuing PhD degrees violating provisions of the laid norms. The same day the CID took over the case under section 406/420/466 IPC. The police had named Jha as one of the accused.

Subsequently, on May 13, the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) here issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Jha in connection with the CID case. Jha applied for an anticipatory bail at the High Court, which was rejected on May 16.

In a different case, the CMJ Foundation, CMJ University and Jha have filed a Special Leave to Appeal (Civil) before the apex court after a division bench of the Meghalaya High Court had rejected their appeal on May 31.

The matter relates to a letter written by the Governor on the irregularities he unearthed as the Visitor of the University. As the University was sealed, Mooshahary further directed the University not to take fresh admission till its clears itself of the allegations. He further directed that the fees of the students enrolled in the University be refunded.

The University challenged the legality of the Governor�s order, but Chief Justice T Meena Kumari on May 16 upheld the legality of the Visitor�s order. CMJ filed a writ petition before a division bench of the High Court to review this order.

However, Justice T Nandakumar Singh and Justice SR Sen had dismissed the writ appeal. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has listed August 2 as the date for the next hearing on the special leave petition (civil) filed by Jha.
