Only Revolutionary Guards can go there. Former detainees say torture sessions are common in this section of the prison.While the uncertainty continues about the fate of Ganji, the former editor of the weekly Rah-e-No and Iran’s leading prisoner of conscience, the intelligence ministry has been summoning independent journalists and representatives of journalists’ associations for questioning. Some have been threatened during these interrogation sessions and all have been notified of a ban on talking about the appointment of Revolutionary Guards to key positions in national and local government. Many journalists now fear that a new wave of arrests may be imminent.For the past 15 years, Reporters Without Borders has been operating a sponsorship programme in which international news media are invited to adopt imprisoned journalists. More than 200 news organisations throughout the world are currently sponsoring journalists by repeatedly asking the relevant authorities to free them and by publicising their cases so they will not be forgotten.Akbar Ganji is sponsored by Le Devoir, Nice-Matin and La Montagne.

Gangsters and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act, 1986 in Police Station Baghauli, District Hardoi against the accused-applicant and two other co-accused.Background of the CasePerusing the gang-chart annexed with the bail application, the Court observed that the provisions of the Gangsters Act were invoked (against the accused-applicant) on the basis of five cases having been registered against the accused-applicant.It is the case of the prosecution that from the accused-applicant, Rs.6600/-, some packets of cigarettes etc., were recovered.The investigating officer had proportioned the amount of Rs.6600/- recovered from the accused-applicant into three thefts alleged to have been committed by the accused.In other words, it was stated by the Police that Rs.1600/- was recovered from the accused-applicant in the first case, Rs.1800/- in the second case and Rs.3200/- in the third case (total amount = 6600).To this, the Court said,”It is very strange that the Investigating Officer did know that a particular amount belonged to a particular theft. How had he identified the particular amount being the amount of theft of a particular case? On the basis of single recovery which was affected from the accused-applicant on 14.08.2019, the Investigating Officer has made him the accused in five cases and within a period of nine days by filing charge-sheets against him.” (emphasis supplied)Further the Court remarked,”This is not a single case where the Court has been confronted with bogus, unbelievable and impossible story set up by the police to implicate one accused in several cases and then invoke the provisions of the Gangsters Act.” (emphasis supplied)In view thereof, the Court directed the Superintendent of Police, Hardoi to file his personal affidavit as to how the investigating officer came to the conclusion that Rs.1600/- allegedly recovered from the accused-applicant belongs to first case, Rs.1800/- to second case and Rs.3200/- to third case whereas it was a single recovery on 14.08.2019 from the accused.Further, the Court remarked,”If the Superintendent of Police is of the opinion, that on the basis of the offences for which the provisions of the Gangsters Act have been invoked against the accused-applicant are false, what action he is supposed to take against the investigating officer concerned.”The Court also directed to specifically state that what kind of investigation had been carried out by the investigating officer except alleged recovery from the accused-applicant inasmuch as he had filed the charge-sheets in all five cases within a period of nine days from the date of alleged recovery from the accused-applicant on 14.08.2019.Lastly, the Court directed that applicant Kapil Raidas be released on bail in the case on his/her furnishing a personal bond and two sureties of the like amount to the satisfaction of the Magistrate/Court concerned.Case title – Kapil Raidas v.
