Wanted to set up ‘Janta Sarkar’: NIA opposes Hany Babu’s bail plea
CLAIMING THAT Elgaar Parishad accused Hany Babu was involved in a conspiracy to set up ‘Janta Sarkar’ (people’s government) by overthrowing the elected government through armed struggle, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday opposed the bail plea of the former Delhi University associate professor.
A division bench of Justice N M Jamdar and Justice N R Borkar was hearing Babu’s appeal seeking bail filed after a special NIA court rejected his plea in February this year.
In its detailed order, the special court had said that there is prima facie evidence that Babu was ‘actively involved’ in activities of banned organisation CPI (Maoist). Babu was arrested by the NIA in 2020 and booked under charges including criminal conspiracy and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
