The Uttar Pradesh government could frame him in another case, Dr Kafeel Khan said after he was released from the Mathura jail late on Tuesday night.
he Uttar Pradesh government instead of doing ‘Raj Dharma’ was indulging in ‘Baal Hatth’ or childlike-stubbornness and could frame him in another case, Dr Kafeel Khan said after he was released from the Mathura jail late on Tuesday night.
The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday quashed Khan’s detention under the National Security Act and ordered his immediate release.
Following the court’s order, Khan was released from Mathura jail late on Tuesday night.
“Mathura jail administration informed at around 11.00 pm that Dr Kafeel will be released, and at around midnight, he was released,” Khan’s lawyer Irfan Ghazi told PTI.
Speaking to PTI after his release from the jail, Khan thanked the court and said, “I will always remain thankful to all my well-wishers, who raised their voice for my release. The administration was not ready for release, but because of the prayers (duaa) of people, I have been released.”
“In Ramayana, Maharshi Valmiki had said that the Raja (king) should act for ‘Raj Dharma’. In UP the ‘Raja’ is not doing ‘Raj Dharma’ but is doing ‘Baal Hatth’ (being stubborn like a child),” Kafeel Khan said.
