Delhi Court to pronounce verdict on release of Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal, Asif Iqbal Tanha today

-

New Delhi, Jun 17 (ILNS) A Delhi Court will today pronounce order on immediate release of Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha, accused in connection with the Delhi riots case under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The Delhi High Court had yesterday granted bail to the three students, stating that prima facie, the alleged offences were not made out against them.

The Bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Anup J Bhambani granted bail to the students, accused of being the masterminds behind the ‘conspiracy’ that led to the North-East Delhi violence in February, 2020. The allegation was that this conspiracy would disturb the law and order of the National Capital

It was further alleged that these members of the Pinjra Tod movement mobilised women in the North-East area of Delhi and created a 24X7 protest site at Madina Masjid, Seelampur and coordinated a chakka jam that incited violence.

This took place on the day when US President Donald Trump was on his India visit. It has been alleged that there could not have been a greater international embarrassment for the government of India, than to have a communal riot in the National Capital at this point of time.


The court found that on the basis of material on record and evidence available in the present case, there is no offence against the three as of now. The bail for all three is subjected to personal bond of Rs 50,000 and three of them surrendering their passports and not to commit any such activity that might hamper the case. The three of them will be allowed to walk out of jail, once the formalities are completed.


Asif Iqbal Tanha is a student pursuing his final year of BA (Honours) (Persian) Programme at Jamia Millia Islamia. Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita are scholars at Jawaharlal Nehru University, who are associated with the Pinjra Tod Collective. They all have been in custody since May, 2020. ILNS/KR/RJ
