Maharashtra HC rejects Naxal’s bail plea

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 12, 2007

NAGPUR: The Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on Saturday rejected the bail plea of the four Naxals who were arrested on May 8 outside Deekshabhoomi in the city. A rifle, Naxalite literature and incriminating documents had been recovered from them.

The Naxals Arun Perreira, Mahesh aka Murali Satyareddy, Devendra Burle and Naresh Bansod had, in turn, alleged that they were subjected to torture by the police, but a thorough check-up by a civil surgeon at the SSH had produced no evidence to back up these charges.

The police had, subsequently filed a chargesheet on August 7.

Arguing for bail, the Naxals pleaded that though 90 days had passed after their arrest, police were yet to obtain permission from the government to prosecute them under the Prevention of Unlawful Activities Act.

Opposing the bail plea, the prosecution pleaded that, since the quartet had been found to possess firearms at the time of their arrest, releasing them on bail might create more law and order problem.

The court, after considering the arguments from both sides, ruled in favour of the prosecution and rejected the Naxals’ bail plea.
