Kolkata: A city court has rejected the bail plea of Tapan Ghosh, Hindu organisation chief and three of its activists on Saturday who were earlier arrested for allegedly attacking scribes. They are remanded to judicial custody up to 22 February after they were produced before a city court on Saturday.
Ghosh was earlier remanded to police custody after he was arrested on the charges of heckling the scribes who went to cover the organisation’s 10th foundation day.
Ghosh, the founder of Hindu Samhati, was present on stage when the scuffle broke out between the scribes and activists of the hardliner Hindu outfit. He was later arrested after being interrogated.
Reporters and camera persons of various media houses were allegedly beaten up by the activists present at the meeting after they tried to talk to the members of a Muslim family who allegedly converted to Hinduism.
