Maharathi bail plea hearing put off to April 27
Bhubaneswar: A Special designated court here on Wednesday postponed the hearing on bail petition of BJD’s Pipili MLA candidate Pradeep Maharathy to April 27.
Sources said the hearing was deferred due to delay in submission of case diary and injury report as the official concerned is busy in poll duty.
Maharathy was arrested on Monday for his alleged involvement in the attack on members of an Election Commission flying squad and Static Surveillance Team in Pipili.
Maharathy was sent to Jharpada Special Jail after the Bhubaneswar Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) turned down his bail petition on April 22.
A case was lodged against Maharathy under IPC Sections 307, 341, 353, 332, 147, 148, 149, 171 (b), 186.
