New Delhi: Trade union leader Gopal Mishra, charged with having links with outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist), was on Wednesday denied bail by a Delhi court.

Additional Sessions Judge Narender Kumar denied bail to Mishra, who along with his wife Kanchan Bala alias Anu, is accused of having links with the banned terrorist organisation and committing offences under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

Mishra had sought bail on the ground that his wife had been granted bail by the high court on March 12.

The ASJ, however, held that his case was different from his wife as he is accused of not only being a member of the banned outfit but further used to incite people to violence.

43-year-old Mishra was arrested by Special Cell of the Delhi Police on April 26 last year from Shahdara in East Delhi and was found carrying various documents and a CD containing material related to CPI (Maoist). His wife Anu was arrested a day later.

The duo have been charged with having links with outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist) and for committing offences under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The two were charged under the provisions of stringent anti-terror law after recovery of some documents from their possession which "lay emphasis" on capturing political power through armed rebellion.

The police has alleged that Mishra and his wife used to visit colleges here to hold meetings and seminars and to distribute leaflets on Maoist ideology among youths.
