Mumbai: On the request of Dr Payal Tadvi’s family, the court proceedings of her death case will be videoed as per a provision in the SC/ST Act. All three accused have been sent to judicial custody till June 24. Mean-while, the three arrested doctors created a ruckus in court premises saying why such long dates are being given and why they are not allowed to speak to their parents.

The special court judge P.B. Jadhav extended the judicial custody of the three arrested doctors till June 24. The judge also def-erred hearing on their bail pleas till June 17, asking the police to file their reply to the bail pleas on that day.

 

The police was supposed to file reply on the bail applications on Monday however, the special public prosecutor Raja Thakre sought more time to file reply following which the judge posted the hearing on bail applications on June 17.

After the hearing was over, the arrested doctors, annoyed with the judge’s verdict on bail application, started crying and said why such long date has been given. They also complained that they are not allowed to meet their parents. The trio alleged that the police have cameras and all the facilities needed but still they are claiming before the court that they do not have cameras (for video recording court proceedings).

 

During hearing, advocate Gunratan Sadavarte had demanded that as per the amended provisions of the SC/ST Act the court proceedings in this case should be video recorded.

Judge Jadhav asked the police to make arrangements for the video recording of court proceedings on the next date of hearing but public prosecutor Raja Thakre opposed the plea saying this provision is being misinterpreted and each and every trial under SC/ST Act need not be video recorded. He also claimed that it was duty of the state government and not the police. However, the judge said the police in this case is representing the state and directed the police to make arrangements for the video recording. The accused were earlier in judicial custody till June 10.
