Delhi HC seeks Kobad’s reply on plea to cancel his bail

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued notice to suspected Maoist ideologue Kobad Ghandy, accused of propagating the activities of the banned CPI-Maoist in the capital city, on a Delhi Police plea seeking to cancel his bail.

Justice P.S. Teji asked Ghandy to file his response on the police plea to cancel his bail.

The court posted the matter for February 26, next year.

Ghandy, who is facing charges dealing with cheating, forgery and impersonation under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and under provisions of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) was granted interim bail in September by the trial court.

According to police, Ghandy was involved in setting up a new network of the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) in Delhi.

He was arrested here on September 20, 2009 while undergoing treatment for cancer. The court had granted bail to Ghandy, 65, who was in custody in this case since September 2009, on health ground.

The court has concluded the recording of prosecution evidence in the case.

Ghandy along with co-accused Rajender Kumar alias Arvind Joshi is facing trial in the case.
