New Delhi [India], Nov 2 (ANI): The Pune Sessions Court on Friday rejected bail plea of advocate Shoma Sen, who has been accused in the Bhima Koregaon violence case.
Sen moved the bail application in the Pune Sessions Court on September 14.
Shoma Sen and four others-- Mahesh Raut, Surendra Gadling, Sudhir Dhawale and Rona Wilson, were arrested for "Maoist" links in June.
The five were accused of their alleged involvement in the violence that erupted earlier this year during the 200th anniversary of the Bhima Koregaon battle.
Apart from this, five activists, namely poet Vara Vara Rao, lawyer Sudha Bhardwaj, activists Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves, and Gautam Navlakha, have also been put under house arrest since August 29 for their alleged involvement in the violence.
One person was killed and many were injured in the clashes which took place on January 1, 2018.
Earlier, the Maharashtra government, in an affidavit, had told the Supreme Court that the activists were "members of banned terrorist organisation Communist Party of India (Maoist)". (ANI)
