Amar Giri Does Not Turn Up Again For Testimony, Court Issues Non-bailable Warrant
Prayagraj, January 3 (TNA) A non-bailable warrant has again been issued against Amar Giri, the plaintiff in the mysterious death case of Mahant Narendra Giri and the witness. The next hearing of the case will be on January 18.
Allahabad District Court issued the NBW against Amar Giri, the plaintiff in the case and witness in the mysterious death case of Narendra Giri, president of Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad and Mahant of Shri Math Baghambari Gaddi after he did not turn up to testify.
This order has been given by the court of Additional Sessions Judge RPS Rana while accepting the application filed by District Government Criminal Advocate Gulab Chandra Agrahari. Earlier on December 11, 2023, Amar Giri, who was missing from the deposition due to a non-bailable warrant, was produced in CBI custody. An undertaking was also given that he would be present in the court on every date fixed for testimony. But, since that day again Amar Giri is absent on the due dates.
On the basis of the undertaking filed by Amar Giri, the court had withdrawn the non-bailable warrant issued earlier, after which the testimony started. The date of January 2 was fixed for recording the complete statement, but he remained absent again on Tuesday. It is noteworthy that on September 20, 2021, the body of Mahant Narendra Giri was found on the floor in the guest room of Shri Math Baghambari Gaddi after hanging himself.
Its FIR was lodged by Amar Giri in George Town police station. Narendra Giri's disciple Anand Giri and priests of Bade Hanuman Temple, Aadya Prasad Tiwari and Sandeep Tiwari are accused in this case. Since September 22, 2021, Anand Giri Chitrakoot and two other accused Aadya Prasad Tiwari and Sandeep Tiwari are lodged in Naini Central Jail. The three accused including Anand Giri have not got bail yet.
While they were in jail, on March 31, 2023, the trial of the case started with the District Judge's court framing charges against the three accused under the sections of abetment of suicide and criminal conspiracy. The plaintiff in the Amar Giri case is the suit.
Therefore, this has to be the first testimony. But, he is continuously running away from testifying. Earlier, he had also filed an affidavit in the High Court saying that he had not filed an FIR. However, now the case is at the trial stage and he is again avoiding testifying. However, the court has again issued a non-bailable warrant and fixed January 18 for the testimony.
