Supian’s anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Kolkata High Court

Supian’s anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Kolkata High Court. He was the election agent of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Nandigram. A bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao reserved the order after hearing the arguments of both the sides. We will pass an order, the court said.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Supiyan, submitted that his client was not named in the chargesheet and said the matter was political and malicious. Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi opposed Supian’s plea and said that other co-accused were already in custody. Lekhi also said that considering the nature of the case, the circumstances of the accused, interference in the order of the Calcutta High Court is unwarranted.

The supreme court was hearing a petition filed by Trinamool Congress leader SK Supian.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), in its affidavit, has opposed the petition filed by Supiyan and urged the court to dismiss his plea seeking relief. The CBI said that the agency has sound reasons to justify the arrest of the petitioner and his custodial interrogation.
