A local court has extended the judicial remand of senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha and his supporters till June 28 even as he did not move for bail on Monday in connection with the alleged assault of a senior government official earlier this month. Conducting the proceedings through videoconferencing, Chief Judicial Magistrate R B Pal extended the judicial remand of Sinha and others till June 28.
It appears that Sinha has not accepted BJP president and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s appeal urging him to come out of the jail and participate in the state unit’s next phase of agitation, which began Monday. Sinha’s son and newly elected Hazaribagh MP Jayant is staging a sit-in near the collectorate as part of the party’s protest against the deteriorating law and order situation and power crisis.
Sinha and 54 of his supporters were sent to jail for allegedly assaulting general manager of Hazaribagh branch of Jharkhand State Electricity Board.
