Court Hearing On Pradeep Maharathy’s Bail Petition Today
Bhubaneswar: The SDJ court will hear the bail petition of BJD’s Pipili Assembly Constituency candidate Pradeep Maharathy today. He was arrested for his involvement in the attack on members of the election 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.
However, the BJD leader fell ill while he was being produced in the JMFC Court and had to be shifted to Capital Hospital for treatment.
Noteworthy, Maharathy was arrested hours after members of the election flying squad and Static Surveillance Team were attacked while conducting a raid at his farmhouse at Hunkeipur village in Pipili late Sunday night.
Puri SP Uma Shankar Dash informed that a case has been lodged against him under IPC sections 307, 341, 353, 332, 147, 148, 149, 171 (b), 186 and 123.
