GUWAHATI: In view of the COVID-19 situation, the Gauhati High Court on Monday further extended all interim orders passed by the High Court and all other subordinate Courts and Tribunals till June 15. Full Bench comprising of Chief Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia, Justices N. Kotiswar Singh and Manash Ranjan Pathak was dealing with the suo moto PIL instituted by the Court owing to the daily surge of cases during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"...In the interest of justice, the order dated 10.05.2021 may be extended for a further period of at least two weeks. We are also of the considered view that under the present circumstances, the order should be extended. Accordingly, the order dated 10.05.2021 is hereby extended for a further period of two weeks i.e. till 15.06.2021," the Court ordered.
"We are conscious of the fact that many of the sureties which have been given for the interim bails, in different cases in the State, would technically be for a limited period only. However, since we have already extended the bail orders initially till 01.06.2021 and now till 15.06.2021, automatically these sureties will also stand extended. All the same, the implication of such an extension and other aspects related to it will be examined by this Court on the next date of listing i.e. 14.06.2021," the order added.
