HC sends sessions judge back to school to learn law

Gujarat High Court Justice Anant Dave ordered Nandiad sessions judge B B Pathak to go back to the judicial academy for a "training session is to be scheduled with regard to powers to be exercised under Section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure" (anticipatory bail), which the judge had flubbed in a blue bull poaching case, refusing bail assuming it was a non-bailable offence, when it is in fact bailable.
