HC Deb 27 February 1919 vol 112 cc1991-2W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the re-arrest, after acquittal, of one Maiku at Farrukabad; and whether he will make inquiries into the continued imprisonment of this acquitted man?


The Secretary of State understands that Maiku was acquitted on a charge of dacoity, but was re-arrested in order to be brought before a magistrate under a Section of the Criminal Procedure Code, which provides for the taking of security for good behaviour from habitual offenders. From a newspaper report of the case it appears that application for a revision of these further proceedings has been made to the High Court at Allahabad, and is being dealt with by that Court.
