Diamond Harbour: Trinamool strongman Arabul Islam, who was arrested before the Panchayat poll, has been sent to police custody again.

Since Arabul is now admitted to SSKM Hospital in Kolkata, his lawyer moved the bail petition at Baruipur Sub-divisional Court today. But the judge Debangani Roy outright rejected the plea saying that she will admit the bail plea only if Arabul appears in person.

The judge then extended the police remand for Arabul by another 10 days.

Arabul was arrested on 11 May after an anti-Trinamool activist was shot dead at Bhangar in South 24-Parganas allegedly by a gang led by him. On that occasion, the court had sent him to police custody till 22 May.
