Midnapore, Dec 5 (UNI) Additional District and Sessions Judge Abdul Kuddus today sent the accused, Tapan Ghosh and Sukur Ali, in the Chhoto Angaria carnage case, to jail custody.
The bail petition, moved by defence lawyer Biswanath Ghosh, was opposed by CBI lawyer Tapas Basu.
Later, the judge rejected the bail petition and sent the accused to jail custody and ordered them to be produced before the court on December 12.
The CBI had produced the duo before the Midnapore court this morning and CBI special council Tapas Basu produced all the investigated 161 documents, statements, bullet examination reports, DNA report and charge sheets of the Chhoto Angaria case before the judge.
Later, Mr Basu told newspersons that a copy of all the documents and charge sheets of the Chhoto Angaria case was forwarded to the defence lawyer.
Tapan Ghosh, Sukur Ali and 12 others were accused in the Chhoto Angaria carnage case, where 11 Trinamool supporters were allegedly burnt alive in Baktar Mandal's house on January 4, 2001, while the house was set afire.
Subsequently, Tapan and Sukur had fled and were wanted by the police and CBI, while five others had surrendered before the court.
The duo was arrested at Egra on November 10 for allegedly abducting injured Trinamool supporters from Khejuri.
CBI DSP Partha Sarathi Basu and inspector Dilip Chakraborty had interrogated the duo at the Midnapore central jail for half and hour on November 26.
However, both the accused fell ill during interrogation and Tapan was admitted to the Midnapore Medical College and Hospital and Sukur was treated in jail.
