Congress MP Bittu gets bail in unlawful assembly case

Chandigarh, October 11 : A local court on Wednesday granted bail to Congress leader and Member of Parliament Ravneet Singh Bittu in a case involving unlawful assembly and disobedience. He had missed three hearings continuously and non-bailable warrants were issued against him. He was present in the court today and the prosecution would argue on the charges on the next hearing on October 21. The matter dates back to 2011 when Bittu was booked by the Chandigarh Police.
As per the complaint, he violated Section 144 of the CrPC imposed by district magistrate and took out a procession and raised slogans.
As per the allegations, Bittu along with 250 workers of the Youth Congress took out the procession and gathered near the gate number 1 of the PGI.
He was briefed that the Section 144 of the CrPC was imposed and he could not take out the procession. He allegedly violated the orders and was booked by the police.
A case was registered based on the complaint of sub-inspector Eram Rizvi on March 7, 2011, at the Sector 11 police station. Bittu was booked under the Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). His counsel had, however, said that the MP was falsely implicated in the case.
