New Delhi: A special National Investigation Agency court has rejected a plea by scholar and activist Anand Teltumbde for temporary bail to visit his family in the aftermath of the death of his brother Milind.

In November, Milind Teltumbde, a top-rung leader of the banned CPI (Maoist) organisation, was one of 26 alleged Maoists who were killed in Maharashtra’s Gadchiroli district in a nearly 12-hour operation by security forces.

Anand Teltumbde was arrested in April 2020 as an accused in the 2018 Elgar Parishad case. He is yet to face trial.

Bar and Bench has reported that Anand submitted in his bail application that his family had lost all touch with Milind in the mid-1990s and had had no contact with him since then. He pleaded for 15 days’ bail to be with his mother in the aftermath of news reaching his family on his brother’s death.

A special judge had, last week, granted Anand no more than five minutes to speak to his mother, who has been in a state of shock since hearing of her son’s death.

In July 2020, Teltumbde had sought bail under section 167 (2) of Code of Criminal Procedure on July 13 as the NIA failed to file a chargesheet against him within 90 days as mandated under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). But the special NIA court had rejected default bail for him.
