Patiala House Court Extends Newsclick Founder's Judicial Custody till December 22

Recently, the Patiala House Court prolonged the judicial detention of Prabir Purkayastha, the founder and editor of the news portal Newsclick, along with HR head Amit Chakraborty, until December 22.

Prabir Purkayastha and Amit Chakraborty, arrested by the Delhi Police under the Anti-Terrorist Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, stand accused of allegedly accepting funds for disseminating pro-China propaganda. Following the conclusion of their judicial custody, both were presented in court on Friday.

Earlier, Delhi Police had taken both of them on remand. Police said that their remand interrogation is also necessary because they have some evidence on which they have to be interrogated and some devices also have to be tested.

Prabir's lawyer Arshdeep Singh Khurana opposed this petition of Delhi Police and said that they ''Should tell what evidence they have found? This information should at least be given to the court. He said that the conspiracy should be told. What were you doing for 25 days?''

His assertion underscores the reality that he wasn't questioned even once throughout his time in judicial custody, shedding light on the investigating agency's approach. He emphasizes the necessity of presenting witnesses for interrogation, suggesting that such questioning could have taken place during the judicial custody period as well.
