HC Deb 30 July 1934 vol 292 c2304W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that Mr. P. C. Joshi was arrested by the order of the magistrate at Cawnpore, under Section 107 of the Indian penal code; what was the charge against him; what sentence was passed on him; what class treatment is being accorded to him; and whether he can state the condition of the health of this prisoner?


Mr. P. C. Joshi was convicted in Cawnpore in April, 1934, and sentenced to two and a-half years imprisonment on charges of "sedition" and "promoting enmity among classes." I have no information regarding the other parts of the hon. Member's question.
