Kalyani: The mother of physician Binayak
Sen, who was sentenced to life imprisonment by a court in
Chhattisgarh for sedition, today alleged there is a conspiracy
by a section of powerful people to foil any possibility of her
son getting bail.

"I fear my son will not be granted bail by the
Chhattisgarh High Court on January 24 as some powerful people
are a hatching conspiracy to influence the judiciary,"
84-year-old ailing Anashua Sen said here.

"I`ll, however, fight for his release till the last drop
of my blood and up to my last breath. If nothing positive
comes out, I`ll move the Supreme Court and write to the
President and the prime minister," she said.

"I`ll also try to mobilise people for a strong campaign
against the injustice done to Binayak," she said.

She alleged that his son has been kept in solitary
confinement to create mental pressure on him. Barring his wife
and daughter, none is allowed to meet him in jail, she said.

On December 24 last year, Additional Sessions Judge B P
Verma in Raipur convicted 61-year-old Sen, vice-president of
People`s Union of Civil Liberties, for sedition and sentenced
to life imprisonment along with Naxal ideologue Narayan Sanyal
and Kolkata businessman Piyush Guha for colluding with
Maoists.
