3 August २००७

PUCL leader Dr Binayak Sen, Maoist idealogue Narayan Sanyal and another person, who were arrested for their alleged links with naxalites, were charge-sheeted under the Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) एक्ट

Police filed the charge-sheets on Wednesday in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Satyabhama Dubey against Dr Sen, Narayan Sanyal and Piyush Guha, who allegedly acted as a courier for naxalites.

Piyush Guha, who was arrested from Raipur railway station on May 5, told police that he was carrying two letters written by Narayan Sanyal, who is presently in jail, and Dr Sen had handed over these two letters to him.

Police contended that Narayan Sanyal, who is considered a top Maoist idealogue, had handed over these letters to Dr Sen when he visited him in jail. Dr Sen, who met Sanyal 33 times, had recorded in jail records that he was Sanyal's relative.

Subsequently, Dr Sen was arrested on May 14 at Bilaspur and later the police seized a computer processing unit from his residence.

Meanwhile, police had also filed an application under section 173 of the Criminal Procedure Code seeking more time for investigations. The court accepted the plea and directed to produce the accused during next hearing on August 16.
