Chhattisgarh HC reserves verdict on Naxal's bail
Bilaspur: The Chhattisgarh High Court has reserved its judgement on the bail application of Malti alias K S Priya, who was convicted for her alleged involvement in Naxal activities. Earlier a lower court had awarded her 10 years imprisonment.
"The single bench of Justice R S Sharma on Thursday reserved its judgement on the bail plea of Malti, who was arrested in 2008 for her alleged involvement in naxal activities," her counsel Satish Verma said.
In 2006, Naxal literature and CDs were distributed at the MLA rest house in Raipur through courier.
Around two years after the incident, police had busted an urban Naxal network and had arrested Malti along with three others – Surendra Kosaria, Siddharth Sharma and Pratik Jha – on February 22, 2008 in this connection.
After hearing the case, a district court had convicted Malti and Surendra and sentenced them to 10 year in jail while two others were acquitted.
Challenging the decision of the district court, Malti later filed an appeal in the High Court along with an application for the suspension of the sentence and grant of bail. After hearing the arguments of Malti's counsel, the court reserved its verdict.
