Notice to Delhi Police on Kobad Ghandy`s bail plea
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday issued notice to Delhi Police on the bail plea of Kobad Ghandy who is facing trial under the anti-terror law.
Justice G.P. Mittal sought response from police by May 2 on Ghandy`s bail plea filed on medical grounds.
Ghandy, 65, an alumni of the Doon School in Dehradun in Uttarakhand, was said to be part Maoist leadership.
Delhi Police Sep 20, 2009, arrested Ghandy for allegedly trying to set up a base in the city for the banned Communist Party of India-Maoist.
Ghandy moved the court asking it to consider his bail plea sympathetically due to his old age problems.
"The bail application may be considered sympathetically since besides being a senior citizen, I suffer from multiple ailments, including urinary prostate problem, irritable bowel syndrome, heart problem, high blood pressure, arthritis and spondylitis for which I require constant care and consistent medical attention, which I cannot receive in jail," he said.
Ghandy has been facing trial on the charges of being a member of a banned terror outfit and for his alleged involvement in activities in violation of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and also for alleged offences of impersonation, cheating and forgery.
