Calcutta High Court Sets Aside Prohibitory Orders in Sandeshkhali

Court Rules Against Section 144 Promulgation, Citing Procedural Issues

The Calcutta High Court, responding to a petition from two Sandeshkhali residents, has overturned the imposition of prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC in the region. Justice Jay Sengupta declared the promulgation of Section 144 as improper, emphasizing procedural concerns. The residents argued that the prohibitory orders were enacted without a valid foundation, limiting people’s right to protest. The state countered, asserting the need to evaluate whether there were sufficient grounds for the protests and addressing alleged violence associated with some demonstrations.
