In Democracy, If Atrocity Committed By Police Against An Advocate, What Would Be Fate Of General Citizen: Asks AP HC
“In a democratic state, if such an atrocity is committed by a government functionary against an advocate, who is an officer of the court, it is difficult to perceive the fate of the general citizen”, observed the Andhra Pradesh High Court. The bench of Justices Rakesh Kumar and K Suresh Reddy was hearing a habeas corpus plea against the illegal detention of an advocate by the police. The division bench expressed that it is “really shocking” that the “wife of an advocate” has approached this court for “issuance of habeas corpus” for her husband. The Court took note of the “serious allegation” that in the mid night at 1 AM, her advocate husband namely Pyla Subhas Chandra Bose, while sleeping in his house with all the family members, was taken away by police officials, who had forcibly entered into the house without following any norms.
