Soren not released
Fails to give passport details

Jamtara (Jharkhand), September 7
Though a Dumka court today granted bail to the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Sibu Soren in a case relating to election violence in 2004, he could not be released as he was unable to give his passport number to a Giridih court as demanded.

At Dumka, Sibu Soren was produced before the First Class Judicial Magistrate Janardan Singh, who after hearing the petition, granted bail to Soren on a personal bond of Rs 5,000.

The Giridih court demanded Sorenís passport number, which he was unable to give. His passport is in the custody of the CBI. The JMM chief is to be produced again in Giridih on September 9, according to the Superintendent of the camp jail here, A. Sinha.

Soren is an accused in the Chirrudih massacre case of 1975 and Pirtand murder case of 1974. The Chirrudih murder case is being tried in Jamtara and the Pirtand murder case in Giridih.

Tomorrow Soren would be produced in a Godda court in connection with another case relating to the beating up of the Block Development Officer.

September 13 is the scheduled date for his production in the Tis Hazari Court, Delhi, in connection with a murder case.

The Jharkhand High Court granted bail to Soren on September 3.

Soren has been in judicial custody since August 2 after his surrender before a Jamtara court. Before his surrender, Soren had to quit the Union Coal Ministry. ó PTI
