He says the NIA theory that he’s waging war is pure bullshit.
Anand Teltumbde, accused in the Bhima Koregaon violence case and testified at Taloja central prison, filed for bail on Wednesday in a court of the National Special Investigation Agency (NIA), claiming that the NIA theory that he “waged war or attempted to wage war or encouraged others to wage war or incited the public is a farce.”
He worked with a public company like Bharat Petroleum Corporation for four decades and held managerial positions, including as an executive director. He also worked as a general manager for six years.
The plea mentions that although he comes from a poor family, due to his brilliance and hard work over five decades of his career, he has achieved the post he holds in Indian society and is a scholar. world famous Dalit. However, casteist forces cannot digest this fact and implicated him in the case in an attempt to belittle his own accomplishments and to humiliate the entire Dalit community, upon which humiliation was heaped no less than Dr. Ambedkar during his lifetime.
The petition read: “The investigative agency did not produce any documents in the NIA court to show that he is a member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist).” The plea is based on the statements of one of the witnesses in the supplementary charge sheet and says: “The book Anti imperialism and caste annihilation is a critique of Maoist ideology and this evidence indicates that Dr Teltumbde is critical of Maoist ideology and in light of this the prosecution’s allegation that the accused is a member of the CPI (Maoist) and acted to make advancing the agenda of the CPI (Maoist) is totally false and therefore in the absence of any evidence that this defendant was either a member of the CPI (Maoist) or had links with the CPI (Maoist) is not at all correct .
The petition also argues: “The position is very clear that Dr Teltumbde was himself a critic of the ideology of the IPC (Maoist) and on this premise, linking it to the IPC (Maoist) is wrong. self and the prosecution itself is unclear about this problem. So the allegation is not only absurd and baseless, but it does not even at first sight lead to a charge against him, leaves out a real accusation at first sight. ”
“The prosecution has brought no evidence to the file showing that the Committee for the Protection of Democratic Rights (CPDR), whose secretary general is Dr Teltumbde, is a front-line organization of the CPI (Maoist). In fact, the evidence gathered during the investigation would show that there is no connection between the CPDR and the CPI (Maoist). The prosecution theory that he is making war or attempting to make war or is accused of encouraging others to wage war or inciting the public is a farce, ”the plea said.
