The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday opposed the bail plea filed by Hany Babu, an accused in the Elgar Parishad case.
A division bench of Justices Nitin Jamdar and NR Borkar was hearing Babu’s bail application.
Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, appearing for the NIA, opposed the plea saying that the accused is a member of banned CPI (Maoist). Material found from his laptop shows that he was in continuous contact with other accused.
Singh further argued that Babu wanted to promote and expand Naxalism and was part of the conspiracy to wage a war against India by overthrowing the elected govt. He along with others wanted to set up "Janata Sarkar" i.e. people's govt by arms struggle.
The HC will continue to hear the bail plea on Friday.
