Mumbai, August 7

A special court here on Friday remanded Delhi University (DU) Associate Professor Hany Babu, arrested in connection with the Elgar Parishad case, in judicial custody till August 21.

Hany Babu Musaliyarveettil Tharayil, 54, Associate Professor at the Department of English of the university, was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on July 28 for his alleged involvement in the case.

He was sent to judicial custody by special court judge D E Kothalikar at the end of his NIA remand on Friday.

Earlier, the NIA had submitted before the court that the accused had links with the CPI (Maoists).

The case relates to the alleged inflammatory speeches made at the Elgar Parishad conclave held in Pune on December 31, 2017, which the police claimed triggered violence the next day near the Koregaon-Bhima war memorial located on the outskirts of the western Maharashtra city.

The Pune police filed a chargesheet and a supplementary charge sheet in the case on November 15, 2018 and February 21, 2019, respectively.

The NIA took up the investigation in the case on January 24 this year. PTI
