Problems in the Armed Forces Tribunal Act, 2007 (India) again come to fore before the High Court

In a pending appeal of a convicted soldier before the Armed Forces Tribunal, if a plea for grant of bail is dismissed by the Tribunal, which is the forum he/she can approach?

Fettered by a statutory bar under the Armed Forces Tribunal Act, 2007, this very pertinent question has arisen before the Punjab & Haryana High Court.

A news report on the subject in The Tribune can be accessed here.
