The Supreme Court has directed the Bihar government to produce complete original records related to the remission granted to Anand Mohan, who was serving a life term in a murder case. Anand Mohan was released from Saharsa jail on April 24 after serving 14 years of imprisonment following an amendment made in Bihar’s prison rules by the state government. The court has listed the plea filed by the wife of the slain officer challenging Mohan’s release and instructed the Bihar government to present the complete records without granting any further adjournments.
Advocates Present Arguments
Advocate Manish Kumar, representing the Bihar government, has been instructed to place the complete records before the court for review. Senior advocate Siddharth Luthra, appearing for Uma Krishnaiah, the wife of the slain officer, argued that the state government has retrospectively changed the policy and released Mohan in the case. Luthra requested the court to direct the state government to present the entire records of Mohan’s criminal antecedents and suggested listing the matter in August. The bench has recorded the appearance of counsel for the state government and Mohan and has stated that no further adjournments will be granted.
