NEW DELHI—The Delhi police have moved the Supreme Court, challenging the bail granted to three student activists-Asif Tanha, Devangana kalita and Natasha Narwal in the Delhi riots case, the Live Law reports.
The Delhi High Court, while granting bail to the three student leaders on June 15, had said that there was no prima facie case made out under UAPA against the three accused persons in the “larger conspiracy” case registered by the Delhi police. The Delhi high court also made important observations with regard to fundamental right to protest and the frivolous use of UAPA to silence dissent.
The Delhi police in its chargesheet had stated that the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019, were part of a “larger conspiracy” behind Delhi riots in February 2020. But the Delhi High Court observed that the allegations made by the police did not amount to terror offences under UAPA and hence, they were entitled to get bail under provisions of CrPC.
