CDRO condemns the move by Jharkhand police to prevent Narayan Sanyal come out of jail
Coordination of Democratic Rights Organisations, CDRO, condemns the move by
Jharkhand police to prevent Narayan Sanyal come out of jail. Narayan Sanyal, senior polit bureau member of CPI (Maoist) who was granted bail in all three cases against him. On 8th October, 2012 SP Hazaribagh accompanied by an Inspector arrived at Hazaribagh Central Jail arrived to search his cell claiming they had information that he was in possession of mobile phone inside the jail premise. Subsequently, they claimed to have discovered a mobile phone and used this excuse to keep him incarcerated. Narayan Sanyal was arrested in December 2005 by the Chattisgarh police but he was officially shown as having been arrested by Andhra Pradesh police. He was then implicated along with Binayak Sen and Piyush Guha in the notorious fabricated case.
The manner in which police and prosecutor are deliberately preventing CPI(Maoist) leaders from being released on bail—by either re-arresting them under preventive detention as in Sushil Roy’s case in 2011, and/or foisiting trumped up case as has been done against Narayan Sanyal—clearly makes a mockery of the government claim that we live under Rule of Law. Surely, if a person is granted bail, then it stands to reason that he/she should be released too. What the latest instance yet again reveals is how police and agencies work to subvert the criminal justice system and holds the judiciary in contempt.
While CDRO is moving the NHRC against such blatant violation of judicial orders we urge all democratic minded people to note this new trend which is accelerating the process of lawlessness that has come to characterise the conduct of Indian police and agencies.
