Kishore was scheduled to appear in court during the remand hearing but he was not produced.
Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua, the lawyer for Kishore, however, expressed his anger over the police’s failure to produce Kishore in court and demanded punishment to those who were involved in the process. He also questioned the jurisdiction of police to file a remand petition after pressing charges against the accused.
At the end of the hearing, the judge rejected the remand application, while there was no application for bail for Kishore.
According to the law, it is mandatory to produce the accused during the remand petition hearing to let the judge observe the person’s physical and mental state.
