No anticipatory bail for CPI-M leader Zakir Hussain

No anticipatory bail for CPI-M leader Zakir Hussain

Kochi: A sessions court Saturday dismissed the anticipatory bail application filed by a local CPI(M) leader, who has been named as an accused in a criminal case.

Considering the anticipatory bail application plea of CPI-M leader Zakir Hussain, who has been booked after a man was allegedly threatened over a business deal, the court said mere delay in registering the case itself was not a ground to grant anticipatory bail.

"This is not a fit case for granting anticipatory bail," the court said while dismissing the plea by Hussain, against whom a case under non-bailable offence has been registered on a complaint sent to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan by victim Jube Poulose in Ernakulam.

In his complaint, Poulose had alleged he was recently forcibly taken to a place by a gang, where Hussain threatened him with dire consequences over the business deal.

Meanwhile, CPI-M Friday removed Hussain from the post of party's Kalamassery area Secretary.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the party's Ernakulam District Secretariat, attended by CPI-M state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

Hussain, who is absconding, however, has been retained as member of the party's district committee.
