Activist Anand Teltumbde, one of the co-accused in the Elgar Parishad case, was denied bail by a special court on Monday.
The accused are members of Kabir Kala Manch, a frontal organisation of the banned terrorist organisation CPI (Maoist).
Anand Teltumbde, the grandson-in-law of Dalit icon Dr B R Ambedkar, was produced before special NIA court judge A T Wankehede, who remanded him to judicial custody.

Kanshiram’s associates engaged in his journalistic ventures and that was a key attribute of the BSP movement. But present-day BSP’s commitment to that culture is questionable.
Anand Teltumbde is the grandson-in-law of Dalit icon Dr B R Ambedkar, whose 129th birth anniversary is being observed today
The activists currently behind bars in connection with the case include Surendra Gadling, Anand Teltumbde, Hany Babu, Mahesh Raut, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves among others
Teltumbde's counsel Mihir Desai mentioned the anticipatory bail application before a single bench of the high court seeking an urgent hearing.
