HC Adjourns Hearing On Mahimananda's Bail Plea

The prosecution counsel argument remained inconclusive as Public Prosecutor Janmejaya Katakia sought some more time to file a document in the court in support of the case against Mishra.

Mishra, the chief of Odisha Stevedores Limited and a few others were arrested for their alleged involvement in the last year s murder of one Mahendra Swain, a local manager of another stevedores company in Paradeep.

Mishra s counsel K T S Tulsi, a senior Supreme Court advocate, has already completed his argument urging the high court to grant bail to his client.

He sought bail for Mishra arguing that the Paradeep police has no admissible evidence against Mishra to prove his involvement in the case.

Countering the prosecutionís stand, Tulsi argued that as per law, any statement of the co-accused persons against one another is not admissible in Court.
