Senior advocate Rebecca M. John, representing Gonsalves, highlighted the commonality between Dr. Teltumbde’s grant of bail by the Bombay high court last year and the evidence in the present case to draw the claim of parity with the high court’s bail order.
On Friday, a division bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Justices Aniruddha Bose and Sudhanshu Dhulia, reserved its judgment on the bail applications of trade unionist, activist and academic Vernon Gonsalves, and activist and lawyer Arun Ferreira for the grant of regular bail. Gonsalves and Ferreira have filed bail applications at the Supreme Court challenging the order of the Bombay High Court dated October 15, 2019, rejecting their bail pleas.

The Supreme Court on Friday reserved its verdict on the bail applications of Bhima Koregaon-accused and activists Vernon Gonsalves and Arun Ferreira, both of whom have been lodged in jail since August 2018 for alleged offences under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967…
Gonsalves and Ferreira have approached the Supreme Court against a December 2021 order by which the Bombay High Court denied them default bail, even as the same benefit was granted to another co-accused, Sudha Bharadwaj. Even though this order was questioned in a subsequent review petition preferred by the two petitioners, the high court, in May of last year, refused to grant them relief.
