No bail for couple alleged to be CPI (Maoist) members
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday dismissed a
bail plea of a couple arrested for allegedly being members of
CPI (Maoist) saying the charges against them were grave.

The court did not allow the plea of the couple saying
they were accused of being members of a banned organisation
under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act that carried
death as the maximum penalty.
In the separate bail applications, Gopal and his wife
Kanchan contended there was no evidence to link them with
Gopal Mishra claimed his father was a veteran freedom
fighter and he was being punished for working for pro-workers
organisation like `Mazdoor Ekta Manch`.
Mishra submitted he was an MA from Jadavpur University in
Kolkata and hailed from a respectable family in Varanasi.
Kanchan, in her plea, said she had no link with CPI
(Maoist) and was working for women`s rights and ran an NGO.
Delhi Police`s Special Cell, which had arrested the
couple from a place near Shyamlal College in East Delhi on
April 26, alleged the couple were active members of CPI
(Maoist) and found in possession of a large quantity of
propaganda material, including CDs, pen drives, relating to
the banned outfit, besides cash of Rs 24,000.
