New Delhi: Gujarat High Court on Monday granted conditional bail to Patidar leader Hardik Patel in connection with Visnagar rioting case and said that he will not be allowed to enter Mehsana for nine months. Earlier, Hardik Patel was granted bail in two other sedition cases filed by the Surat and Ahmedabad police.
The court had asked him to stay out of Gujarat for a period of six months.
Hardik Patel had been booked with sedition charges on October 19 over his provocative remarks where he had asked his supporters to kill policemen rather than commit suicide for the cause of reservation.
Patel was arrested and imprisoned in a jail in Surat after he led a huge revolt of the Patidar community against the ruling BJP Government in the state.
Patel's arrest was followed by large-scale arson and violence by his supporters in some of Gujarat's biggest towns.
