HC recalls arrest warrant against Bolpur BJP neta

In News

Kolkata: Calcutta HC on Tuesday recalled the arrest warrant against BJP leader and candidate from Bolpur assembly constituency Anirban Ganguly, reports Subrata Chattoraj.

The additional chief judicial magistrate had issued the warrant on April 13 based on a case registered with Bolpur PS on April 21, 2021 against Ganguly and eight others, slapping charges of wrongful restraint among others. The investigating agency had submitted a charge sheet on September 30, 2021 and made a prayer to issue a warrant of arrest against Ganguly. However, Ganguly submitted in court that neither police nor the magistrate made efforts to secure his presence before issuing the warrant.

Justice Bibek Chaudhuri held that since the punishment prescribed for the charge-sheeted offences against Ganguly were below seven years, the magistrate had no power to issue the warrant directly on receipt of the charge sheet.
