Bail rejected for Naxalite suporters

Statesman News Service

PARALAKHEMUNDI, April 12: The six Naxalite supporters who had been granted bail by the ADJ Mr KC Patnaik last week had been turned down yesterday by the same ADJ. It is learnt that the prosecution had filed a revised petition stating that the accused had their bail pleas pending in the High Court, hearing which the public prosecutor, the ADJ refused to consider the bail.

It may be mentioned here that 22 persons including two teenaged girls had been arrested for their connections with the Naxal attack on the R Udayagiri police station, jail, treasury and tehsil office along with the killing of the three OSAP constables and the subsequent kidnapping of two officers.
While the two girls had been let off on bail the others were kept in the Circle Jail of Berhampur. Advocate Mr Upendra Nayak is fighting the cases on behalf of the accused.
