On Monday, a Palghar district court granted bail to the 28 accused in the case of mob lynching and murder of three people including two Sadhus. It has been reported that the police could not produce enough evidence against the accused within 90 days.

Judicial Magistrate M.V. Javale from the Dahanu Session's Court granted bail to the 28 accused under Section 167 (2) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) on a bond of ₹30,000 each. According to sources, out of the 28 individuals, 18 have also been accused in other cases including an attempt to murder, preventing public servants from doing their duties, harming public servants and rioting with dangerous weapons. Due to this, only 10 accused will be acquitted at present. A total of 154 people were arrested in this case.

On the night of April 17, two sadhus and a driver were on their way to Surat in a car. When the car reached Gadchinchale village in the Palghar district, the villagers attacked the three and beat them to death with sticks, sticks and stones. The villagers later claimed that they mistook the three men for thieves. 

The first two FIRs, in this case, named the 28 accused, out of which 18 of them were named in the third charge sheet and were arrested again. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Maharashtra is currently investigating the case.
