Delhi Police moves SC challenging Delhi HC order allowing bail to Natasha, Devangana and Asif

-

New Delhi, June 16 (ILNS): The Delhi Police has today moved to the Supreme Court challenging the order of the Delhi High Court allowing bail to Natasha Narwal, Devanagana Kalita and Asif Iqbal Tanha arrested under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) in connection with a case related to larger conspiracy in the north east Delhi riots in February last year.

The appeal has been filed challenging the order of the Delhi HC allowing bail to 2019 Delhi riots accused in appeal filed under section 21(4) of the National Investigation Agency Act, 2008 r/w section 43(D)(5) of the UAPA.

They are 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.

The HC has 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\GM
