The Yogi government of UP has received a setback from the Supreme Court. The court has dismissed the petition filed in the case of Dr. Kafeel Khan, suspended from Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College, Gorakhpur. The state government had filed a petition against Kafeel Khan against the Allahabad High Court’s decision to remove the NSA clauses.
You should know that after getting bail from Allahabad High Court, Dr. Kafeel Khan was released from Mathura jail on September 2. The Allahabad High Court dismissed the NSA imposed on Kafeel Khan as illegal and ordered him to be released from jail immediately.
The court had made a strong comment
Kafeel was sent to jail under the NSA for making inflammatory statements on the CAA and NRC issues. The High Court had raised questions on the functioning and decision of the government staff of UP in a strong comment. The two biggest reasons for the relief given to Dr. Kafeel are the lack of adequate basis for the NSA and the non-supply of all documents to the accused in the jail after the NSA was imposed.
