Kolkata: After facing flak from the Calcutta High Court, Jailed minister Madan Mitra has been denied bail by the Alipore CJM court on Thursday. The court remanded Madan Mitra to jail custody till May 7.
Mitra’s lawyer had earlier withdrawn their bail plea from High Court due a stalemate in hearing procedures and filed a bail plea at the Alipore CJM court.
Madan Mitra was arrested on December 12, 2014 in connection to the Saradha Scam and is kept in jail custody till now. Due to his bad health conditions, he has been a regular visitor to the jail hospital. It is learnt through court sources that Madan is on the verge of serving a sentence which could last upto almost a span of 7 years.
