Special NIA court denies bail to Stan Swamy over Elgar Parishad-Maoists links case

A special NIA court has refused bail to 83-year-old activist Stan Swamy in the Elgar Parishad-Maoists links case. The court observed that based on material on record it was evident that Stan Swamy had schemed a "serious conspiracy" with members of a banned Maoist organisation to create unrest in the country and to overthrow the government. Special judge DE Kothalikar, who rejected Stan Swamy's bail plea on Monday also observed that the evidence suggested that Stan Swamy was a member of a banned Maoist organisation. The material that the court referred to included around "140 e-mails between the applicant (Stan Swamy) and his co-accused," the fact that Stan Swamy and others he communicated with, were referred to as "comrades", and that Stan Swamy had received ₹ eight lakh from one "Comrade Mohan", allegedly for the furtherance of Maoist activities. "Prima facie it can be gathered that the applicant along with other members of the banned organisation hatched a serious conspiracy to create unrest in the entire country and to overpower the Government, politically and by using muscle power," the order read. "The material placed on record thus prima facie denote that the applicant was not only the member of banned organisation CPI (Maoist) but he was carrying out activities further in the objective of the organisation which is nothing but to overthrow the democracy of the nation," said Justice Kothalikar in the order.

Communists and Congress - Two sinking ships

The downward slippery journey of Indian communists and Congress is a reality, and this decline is not only electoral but also in influencing the sociopolitical mindset.

This was flagged off when Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was in India and was holding bilateral talks with her Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi. She also hailed ...
