Relief for Tajinder Bagga hours after fresh arrest warrants were issued

The Punjab and Haryana High Court gave relief to Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga after his petition was heard in the middle of the night. It directed the Punjab government to not take any coercive action against Bagga. The orders stands until the next hearing on May 10.

The BJP leader had moved the high court challenging the non-bailable arrest warrant issued by a Mohali Court on Saturday. The warrants were related to a case against him on the charges of making provocative statements, promoting enmity and for alleged criminal intimidation.
