Non-bailable charge not in FIR against MLAs

Written By Unknown on Kamis, 21 Maret 2013 | 22.23

MUMBAI: A team of the crime branch, which is following up on the FIR against 15 MLAs for the assault on a traffic police-man, collected CCTV footage from five cameras on the as-sembly premises. "We have just got the CCTV footage and are trying to identify people (involved in the assault) be-sides MLAs Ram Kadam and Kshitij Thakur," said joint commissioner Himanshu Roy.

A top officer said though various IPC sections like caus-ing grievous hurt and wrong-ful assembly have been applied on the MLAs, cops have not included the tougher and non-bailable section 332—voluntar-ily causing hurt to deter a public servant from his duty. In the House, a resolution for suspension was moved by parliamentary affairs minister Harshvardhan Patil and adopt-ed by voice vote. "Their action has lowered the dignity of the august House and for it, the Vidhan Sabha expresses regr-et," Patil said, adding that Sachin Suryavanshi was beaten up when he visited room 114 around 12.50pm during a breach of privilege hearing over an altercation he had with MLA Thakur near the Bandra Worli Sea Link last week.

Outside, as police teams sought to arrest the MLAs, it was learned that Mumbai po-lice commissioner Satyapal Singh, speaker Dilip Walse-Patil and CM Prithviraj Chavan had hammered out a for-mula whereby Thakur and Kadam would surrender on Thursday morning. In the evening, Singh denied it. "There is no question of the MLAs offering to surrender. My teams are hunting for them but as of now, we have not made any arrest," he said.

Sources said two teams of senior police officers had gone to Vidhan Bhavan and another team was sent to Virar to ar-rest Thakur. But they were unsuccessful. Kadam and Thakur's cell phones were switched off, and there were reports that they would file for anticipatory bail on Thursday. The sources said the case against Kadam and Thakur was strongest as in the FIR Su-ryavanshi has said that Kad-am first slapped him and tried to strangle him while threat-ening that "wherever you go, I will kill you". Thakur joined Kadam and kicked him in his groin and threatened him.

The IPS officer's associa-tion on Wednesday met to con-demn the attack, but seemed to have been mollified by the gov-ernment action. "We were told appropriate action has been taken. The government has stated in the House that they have suspended the MLAs...," said secretary P K Jain. However, the suspension angered the opposition, which claimed Congress-NCP legisla-tors had been spared. "We had advocated strict action against our own MLAs... but it's unfair that the Congress-NCP spared its own MLAs who had threat-ened to stall budget proceed-ings if subjected to the embar-rassment," said MNS leader in the house Bala Nandgaonkar.
