The Case Till Now
Read about the complete case – Father Stan Swamy Undertrial -Human Rights Violated
Father Swamy’s arrest was in the Bhim Koregaon case and involvement with the Maoists. The 83-year old man is a patient with Parkinson’s Disease. Hence, he filed a petition on November 6.
Already, the National Investigation Agency delayed in responding to the petition by 3 weeks. The decision to the same stretched till December 4. Earlier, the National Investigation Agency denied hold to his belongings and has continued to state the same. The Agency also notified about the investigation that undertook with an independent witness. Resulting in no evidence of straw and sipper.
Now on November 5, finally Fr. Swamy received the essentials as per his health condition. However, new anxiety of his transfer to a new prison surrounds Fr. Swamy.
Furthermore, three new petitions are filed by Stan Swamy.
Firstly, requesting his bag
Secondly, hard disks’ clone copy
Thirdly, not to transfer him from Taloja Jail.
The hearing on these new petitions will be on December 10 by the special court. Previously Mr. Swamy’s petition to bail on medical grounds was denied because his arrest was under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
Father Stan Swamy has always fought for human rights. He is a human rights activist. He has shown continuous denial of the allegations. Still has promised support in the investigation. Since October he is under trials. After such ignorance and denial, justice was surely questionable.
Yet justice was delayed but not completely rejected, so important is to see where the case turns to.
