Raju Ramachandran is a senior advocate at Supreme Court of India and a former Additional Solicitor General. He has also served as an amicus curiae (friend of the court) for the Supreme Court of India in the 2002 Gujarat violence case and in the appeal of Ajmal Kasab in the 2008 Mumbai attacks case.
WHen appointed by SC to investigate allegations of Narendra Modi’s complicity in the Gujarat riots,he has said that there appear to be enough grounds for offences to be made out against the chief minister. Mr Ramachandran’s report, submitted to the Supreme Court in February this year, says that “the offences which can be made out against Shri Modi, at this prima facie stage” include “promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and acts prejudicial to (the) maintenance of harmony.” (Read Ramachandran’s entire report here).
Mr Ramachandran’s findings differ from those of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was asked to determine whether Mr Modi should be tried for his alleged role in the riots.
Ajmal Kasab does not deserve death
He is the same lawyer argued to save dreaded terrorist Kasab.
He goes on to say:
Ajmal Kasab does not deserve death penalty in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case, argued senior advocate and amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran and listed five grounds before the Supreme Court while requesting imposition of life term on the lone surviving gunman involved in the 2008 attack.
Before completing his arguments on behalf of Kasab before a bench of Justices Aftab Alam and Chandramauli Kumar Prasad, the amicus curiae stressed that the accused did not get a fair trial. Ramachandran also said Kasab did not get proper legal assistance during the trial leading to violation of fundamental right guaranteed under Article 22.
Defended Kasab for free
Raju Ramachandran, the senior lawyer who defended Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab in the Supreme Court as amicus curiae on the orders of the court, has said he does not want the fee of Rs. 11 lakh due to him.
Bail for Kanhaiya
Now this same lawyer has moved SC for bail to JNU anti national student,
A day after the Patiala House Court sent Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) president to 14-day judicial custody, Kanhaiya Kumar on Thursday moved the Supreme Court for a bail in sedition case.
Raju Ramachandran, the lawyer for Kanhaiya Kumar, told the Supreme Court that there were “extraordinary hostile circumstances” in the trial court, hence the bail matter must be heard in the apex court.
