Murali Kannambally and his aide in custody till June 9

justiceforMuraliPUNE: A special court here on Monday remanded senior CPI (Maoist) leader Murali Kannambally and his aide, Ismail Hamja CP, in judicial custody till June 9 after the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) moved a plea while reserving its right to seek the duo’s further custodial interrogation depending on fresh disclosures in the ongoing probe against them. Murali (61) and his aide were arrested by the ATS from Talegaon Dabhade near Pune on May 8 and are charged for various offences including forgery, use of forged documents and impersonation under the Indian Penal Code and offences under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for alleged anti-national activities and promoting and spreading activities of the banned CPI (Maoist) organization.
Since their arrest, the ATS first secured their custody till May 15 and the same was extended by the court till May 21 and again till May 25 i.e. total 16 days. At the last hearing, the ATS had informed the court that it wanted to arrest a key suspect from Thane who provided finances and logistic support to Murali and his aide and also sought Murali’s DNA test in view of the several fake identities he had given till his arrest. An ATS official said, “We have disclosed to the court some more progress in our investigation but, have sought magisterial custody for the two accused as we may need them for custodial interrogation on a later stage when some fresh arrests are made.” Murali’s lawyer, Rahul Deshmukh, said, “The ATS report on Monday made no significant disclosure apart from the fact that they are after the key suspect from Thane. The ATS has taken blood samples of Murali and has summoned his brother for DNA matching formalities. We will take a call on moving a bail plea once we get certified copies of all relevant documents.”
