HC asks NIA to give Chhatradhar probe documents to advocate-general
Times of India, 05 December 2020
Kolkata: Calcutta High Court on Friday directed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to hand over probe documents against former PCPA leader Chhatradhar Mahato to the advocate-general of Bengal.
The NIA has requested the HC to cancel bail granted to Mahato, who has now joined the Trinamool Congress, because he did not appear before a court designated to hear the alleged hijacking of Rajdhani Express and other matters in which he is an accused.
On coming to know that the NIA has charged Mahato with sedition, the bench of justices Sanjib Banerjee and Aniruddha Roy directed it to hand over documents to the advocate-general who will submit the state’s stand on the matter within a week.
