Jam Bazaar Looting Case.

Mr. Nugent Grant with Mr. R.N. Aingar moved, this morning [October 18], for the admission of a Revision Petition on behalf of one Azimmuddin, a Chaffeur of Mr. Venkiah, to set aside the order of the Chief Presidency Magistrate convicting Azimmuddin of rioting in connection with the Jam Bazaar looting on the 9th September last and sentencing him to one month’s rigorous imprisonment and Rs. 50 fine. The Chief Presidency Magistrate in convicting the accused held that the accused was found among the looters scattering rice from the shop. It was argued in revision that the accused was roped in by the Police along with the others whether they did or did not take part in the looting. The accused was sent on a perfectly lawful errand to the market, to wit, to purchase fruits and flowers. It was quite possible that he sought refuge in the shop amidst the confusion that prevailed in the bazaar owing to looting. The Inspector of Police himself did not give evidence to show that the accused took part in the looting.
