    Gauhati High Court Asks Ranjan Daimary To Surrender

    Ranjan Daimary was granted interim bail for four weeks on January 24th, 2020

    The Gauhati High Court on February 20th, 2020, ordered the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) leader Ranjan Daimary to surrender as his validity of interim bail of four weeks is stated to expire.

    It may be mentioned that the Daimary was released from jail on January 24th, 2020, on interim bail for a period of four weeks to participate in the signing of historic Bodo Peace Accord in New Delhi. The accord was signed between the Central government, state government and the NDFB on January 27th, 2020.

    The High Court has not extended the validity of Daimary’s bail saying that he should surrender first before the court and then can appeal a new plea for his bail.

    Earlier, a special court pronounced life imprisonment to Daimary in connection to the 2008 Assam serial blasts case on January 30, 2019.
