Chandigarh, November 25

The Punjab and Haryana High Court put Haryana on notice on Wednesday on a habeas corpus petition filed by a farmers’ union, alleging illegal midnight raids and illegal detention of farmers to sabotage “peaceful protest planned against the three contentious farm laws viewed as anti-farmer”.

Appearing before the Bench of Justice Sant Parkash through video-conferencing on behalf of the Haryana Progressive Farmers Union, counsel Pardeep Kumar Rapria submitted that the petitioner was an advocacy group formed by farmers from various parts of Haryana for the welfare of cultivators.

They were seeking issuance of a writ in the nature of habeas corpus for direction to the state and other respondents to release the detainees enumerated in a list. — TNS
