Delhi Court directs release of Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita, Asif Iqbal Tanha


New Delhi, Jun 17 (ILNS) A Delhi Court today directed the release of students Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha, accused in a case related to Delhi riots, from judicial custody.

The order for their release was pronounced by Additional Sessions Judge at Karkardooma Courts Ravinder Bedi, who stated said this court has passed an order and sent the release warrants by email to prison authorities.

The Court refused the request of Delhi Police seeking three days to verify the addresses and sureties, after bail was granted to the accused by the Delhi High Court yesterday, stating that prima facie alleged offences not made out against them.

The Trial Court had yesterday reserved its order on the immediate release of the students, accused for offences under UAPA.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi Police had challenged the Delhi High Court order of granting bail to the accused in the Supreme Court.

A Bench of Justices Siddarth Mridul and Anup Jairam Bhambhani said, “We expect the Trial Court to proceed further expeditiously and list the matter for hearing at 3:30PM today.

They are accused of being the masterminds behind the conspiracy that led to violence in North-East Delhi in February, 2020. The allegation was that this conspiracy would disturb the law and order of the National Capital.

The Delhi High Court had granted them bail on June 15, 2021.

The HC had noted, “We are constrained to express, that it seems, that in its anxiety to suppress dissent, in the mind of the State, the line between the constitutionally guaranteed right to protest and terrorist activity seems to be getting somewhat blurred. If this mindset gains traction, it would be a sad day for democracy.” ILNS/KR/RJ
