The court took strong ex­cep­tion to goof up by Delhi Po­lice by not com­ply­ing with its or­der of June 26 ask­ing it to re­spond to the bail plea of the ac­cused and go­ing ahead with the pre­vi­ous day's or­der di­rect­ing it to hand over the man to Ma­nipur Po­lice for his pro­duc­tion be­fore a court in Im­phal on June 27.

Ningth­ou­jam Somen­dro Singh was ar­rested on June 24 here by the Spe­cial Cell of Delhi Po­lice and Ma­nipur Po­lice had come to the na­tional cap­i­tal for his tran­sit re­mand.

Singh was pro­duced be­fore a court here on June 25 where his plea for tran­sit bail was dis­missed by the judge who had or­dered that ac­cused be kept in the cus­tody of spe­cial cell till June 26 and be pro­duced be­fore the court in Im­phal on June 27.

On June 26, Singh, through his ad­vo­cate Tarun Rana, moved an­other plea seek­ing tran­sit bail be­fore the ses­sions court which had is­sued no­tice to in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer (IO) of Ma­nipur Po­lice and the spe­cial cell di­rect­ing them to ap­pear in per­son be­fore it on June 27.

How­ever, on June 27, the court was in­formed by the spe­cial cell that Singh had al­ready been taken to Ma­nipur by the IO to pro­duce him be­fore the court there.
