Ajitha’s bail application rejected

Mr. P.K. Lakshmanan, District and Sessions Judge, to-day [February 4, Calicut] rejected the bail application filed on behalf of Miss Ajitha, said to be one of the top Naxalite leaders, now under remand in connection with the attack on Pulpally wireless station. The Judge, however, granted bail to another accused, Mohanan, on health grounds. The Judge observed that though the investigations in the case had not yet been completed, a prima facie case had been made out against Miss Ajitha in all the cases in which she was alleged to have been involved. Miss Ajitha was credited with being the “motive force or live wire” of the group which was alleged to have committed the offences. The Judge said that since several others alleged to be involved in the crimes were yet to be apprehended, the danger of the crimes being committed again if the accused was enlarged on bail, could not be over-ruled.
