Why Bail For 2G Accused?

The arguments:

  • Main investigation over, first chargesheet filed way back in April, trial likely to be long
  • “Tampering with evidence” charge vague; stringent bail conditions can be set to
    prevent tampering
  • “Gravity of offence” may not be tenable ground to deny bail
  • Economic crimes not on par with murder, terrorism
  • Detention shouldn’t be used as a substitute for punishment
