    Gurjant denied bail, family mulls high court option


    TAMLUK: Truck driver Gurjant Singh, accused of hitting railway minister Mamata Banerjee's convoy during her return from Lalgarh on August 9, was denied bail by the Tamluk court on Monday against the expectations of the driver's relatives, who had come all the way from Punjab. Judicial magistrate of Tamluk first court Mayukh Mukherjee turned down Gurjant's bail plea and remanded him in judicial custody for another three days till August 25.

    The bail application was turned down on grounds that the prosecution could not submit the progress report of the CID investigation, the technical report on the truck driver's claim that the brakes failed and that he could not control the vehicle. Neither did the prosecution submit the relevant case diary. Public prosecutor Safiul Ali Khan opposed the bail application and pleaded for taking Gurjant in CID custody. The magistrate asked the prosecution to submit the relevant details during Gurjant's production on Wednesday. Public prosecutor Safiul Ali Khan pleaded for CID custody.

    The rejection came as a blow to Gurjant's relatives and his fellow men, who gathered at Tamluk court since morning to take back the "innocent" truck driver. Apart from Gurjant's brother Veer Singh, uncle Kaur Singh, truck owner Mangat Rai Bansal and Narinder Singh, a total 300 members of the Shree Guru Singh Sabha had assembled at the court premises.

    "We were quite sure that Gurjant would be granted bail. All of us are disappointed with the outcome of Monday's hearing. We are holding a meeting on Tuesday to decide on whether to contest the case in the same court or move high court. This case can't be allowed to drag for long," said Shree Guru Singh Sabha spokesperson Satnam Ahluwalia. They wondered why the CID did not place the papers in court.

    And this, when the CID probe revealed that Gurjant's vehicle came down on the service road and rammed on the left side of a vehicle belong to security personnel and the vehicle was after three cars behind Mamata's.

    Initially, police lodged a case of dangerous driving against Gurjant Singh but later it was amended as a case of attempt to murder following the complaint of Trinamool MP Shubhendu Adhikary. CID was handed over the case and for the past 12 days, CID officers have been probing the case.

    But in the past 12 days, CID officers could not find any clue to establish the criminal conspiracy. On the contrary, the circumstantial evidence matched Gurjant's claims who repeatedly tried to convince the cops that it was an accident due to mechanical fault in his vehicle.


    Days ago, state DGP Bhupinder Singh had also confirmed that the mechanical report of the vehicle suggested a fault in the vehicle's brakes. Gurjant's lawyers showcased the DGP's statement to argue that his comment was enough to conclude that the truck driver had no malafide intention.

    Meanwhile, CID officers went to Gurjant's native village in Sanrgrur district of Punjab and verified his background with local police. "Nothing unusual was found," admitted a CID officer. In the past few days, CID took the accused truck driver to all the places in West Bengal that he touched while coming to this place from Haldia to Bongaon.
