Mere possession of liquor not a threat to public order, rules Gujarat High Court
| Sunday | 15th September, 2019
The Gujarat High Court has set aside a detention order passed by Junagadh collector against a man charged with bootlegging and directed the state government to immediately release him.
The man had been detained on March 20 under the Gujarat Prevention of Anti Social Activities (PASA) Act for being a “threat to public order”.
As per the case details, the man had moved the HC after the detention order was passed against him.
It was argued that there was nothing on record connecting alleged anti-social activity of the detenue with the breach of public order.
The counsel for the state government argued that the detention order was passed by the authorities after proper investigation and it should be upheld by the court.
