Denial of bail to Stan Swamy evokes criticism, anguish

Light of Truth

The denial of bail to Father Stan Swamy continues to evoke condem-nation even as the court claimed it has found evidence to prove the 83-year-old Jesuit tribal activist had conspired to overthrow the government.
Special judge D E Kothalikar of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) court rejected Father Swamy’s bail plea on March 22 but his order was made available a day later.
The order says the bail was refused based on the material on record that indicated Father Swamy was a member of the banned Maoist organization that had hatched a “serious conspiracy” to create unrest in the country and to overthrow the government.
