Bhubaneswar: The Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Court in Banpur today sent Chilika MLA Prashant Jagdev to the Banpur Sub-jail after he surrendered before the court.
According to reports, the MLA surrendered before the Banpur JMFC court following the expiry of his interim bail period. The Court sent him to the jail after rejecting his fresh bail plea.
It is to be noted here that Jagadev was arrested on March 22 after more than 20 people including six-seven cops, journalists, and women were injured after they were run over by the legislator on March 12.
The Banapur JMFC court had on March 31 rejected the Chilika MLA’s bail plea, following which he was sent to jail. Later, he approached the High Court for bail.
While conducting a hearing of his bail plea, the High Court granted him interim bail on health grounds on April 27 asking him to surrender after seven days. However, the court again extended his interim bail period twice till May 11 and May 23.
As the top court of the State has rejected his bail plea now it is for sure that he will be sent to jail once again.
