Kochi : The court on Saturday dismissed PC George’s plea for anticipatory bail in connection with hate speech in Vennala. The response came from Ernakulam District Sessions Court. The govt held view that PC George possessed dubious motive in playing out a repeat of the offence being tried by lower court in Thiruvananthapuram. Didn’t the Thiruvananthapuram court tell not to repeat similar offence, the Ernakulam court asked George.
Context : PC George had said Muslim vendors mixed chemicals in beverages to induce infertility so their popoulation outran others.
