Barasat, Dec 10 (UNI) Chief Judicial Magistrate of the district court Sumitra Roy today remanded All India Minority Forum (AIMF) president Idris Ali, accused of inciting the November 11 violent outburst, to judicial custody for two weeks.
Mr Ali was booked by the Amdanga police station for allegedly instigating riots, voluntarily causing grievous injury by dangerous weapons or means and abetting the commission of suicide and attempt to murder or causing hurt to any person.
The AIMF president was on judicial remand by a city court despite being granted bail by a Sealdah court.
Meanwhile, a large number of AIMF supporters staged demonstrations in front of the court to protest Mr Ali's arrest.
The district administration had deployed a strong police contingent as well as the Rapid Action Force to maintain law and order at the court premises.
Earlier, the Magistrate heard both the public prosecutor and defence lawyer Samir Kumar Dutta, who had moved bail petitions on behalf of the accused.
Ms Roy reserved the verdict for some time, considering the prevailing situation surrounding the court complex, and later dismissed Mr Ali's bail petition.
