High Court to hear appeal in chick-killing case
Father Simon D’Cunha and Sister Deena have spent two and a half weeks behind bars in Haldwani in Uttarakhand state following their arrest on August 8 for violating the Wildlife Act.
A district court rejected a bail request saying the incident was “inhuman and anti-environmental and done deliberately.”
Bishop Anthony Fernandes of Bareilly in the neighboring state of Uttar Pradesh filed an appeal to the High Court which will be heard on August 29, he said.
