Mahato sent to jail custody for 14 days

Posted by Admin on October 11, 2009

Rejecting pleas for police custody, the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM), Jhargram, remanded Chhatradhar Mahato in jail custody for 14 days.

Counsel for the state government advocate Ashoke Bakshi had sought an extension in the police remand of Mahato, leader of the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCAPA) in Lalgarh, for another 15 days.

Delivering the order, Judge Vishal Mangrathi said the police had taken Mahato in its remand for 14 days since his arrest on September 26 and so further police custody for Mahato is not required. The court remanded Mahato in jail custody till October 23.

Arguing for an extension of Mahato’s police custody, Bakshi said that the court could have granted police remand for another 15 days according to the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The extension in police custody was required as Mahato needed to be taken to different place s for search operations, said Bakshi.

Earlier, the court had granted police custody for three days, but it was not enough to conduct search in various places of Lalgarh and its adjoining areas in presence of Mahato, he said. Bakshi said that the police have recovered arms based on information provided by Mahato.

Bakshi explained that though PCAPA was not banned under UAPA, Mahato was also linked with the CPI (Maoist), which is banned under UAPA. Allegedly, Mahato had also individually continued terrorist activities for long. So, the police booked him under UAPA, said Bakshi.

He has disclosed valuable information to the police during interrogation. So further police custody of Mahato was required for the sake of investigation, pleaded Bakshi.

Advocate Kausik Sinha, counsel of Mahato pleaded that police have already interrogated Mahato in its custody for two weeks. So the court should send him to jail custody according to the provisions of the CrPC. IE
