SC grants pre-arrest bail to Mamata’s election agent in murder case.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted anticipatory bail to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s election agent and Trinamool Congress leader S K Supiyan in connection with a murder case of a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker, which is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and Abhay S. Oka said “considering the peculiar facts of the case, we are of the view that the appellant deserves to be granted pre-arrest bail”. The bench, however, said that Supiyan “will have to fully cooperate with the respondent (CBI) for investigation and will have to remain present for investigation as and when called upon by the investigating officer” and added “we make it clear that the pre-arrest bail granted to the appellant is liable to be cancelled if it is found that the appellant is not cooperating for the investigation”.
