India Tomorrow | India Tomorrow

NEW DELHI—A Mathura court has rejected the bail applications of three Popular Front of India (PFI) activists who were on their way to Hathras along with a Delhi-based Kerala journalist Siddique Kappan. They were to meet the family members of a 19-year-old Dalit girl who was allegedly gangraped and then murdered.

The bail plea was rejected by Additional District and Session Judge Mayur Jain on Friday

The PFI activists, whose bail plea was rejected, were Atiqur Rahman, Masood Ahmad and Mohammed Aalam. They were arrested on October 5.

They are facing charges under Section 17 and 18 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, Indian Penal Code’s Section 124-A pertaining to sedition, Section 153 (promoting enmity among groups on basis of religion), Section 295-A pertaining to deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings and Section 65, 72 and 75 of the IT Act.

While Atiqur Rahman is a student, Masood is pursuing a PhD programme. Mohammad Aalam is a cab driver who was taking them to Hathras.
