Pinki today walked out of jail on bail after 26 days in judicial custody.
"Many times, innocents are arrested and punished. Pinki was also being punished for the past few days. The case should have been dealt a bit more carefully," he said.
Meanwhile, support for the former athlete continued to grow as around 20 former sportspersons, including Ranji Trophy winning Bengal skipper Sambaran Banerjee, took out a procession today demanding justice for Pinki.
Members of civil rights body Association for Protection of Democratic Rights (APDR) also joined the procession that started from the Press Club and ended at football legend Gostha Pal's statue opposite Eden Gardens.
