Karkadooma Court needs address verification, release of Natasha and Devangana may be delayed


New Delhi, Jun 16 (ILNS) Delhi’s Karkardooma Court will decide, possibly this afternoon, on the application filed by Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita for their immediate release from judicial custody after regular bail was granted to them by the Delhi High Court.

The two have been held in a case related to a larger conspiracy that led to riots in the North-east area of the national capital in February last year. The Court deferred hearing yesterday, after want of verification of their addresses.

Additional Session Judge Ravinder Bedi of Karkardooma Court has called for a verification report from the concerned SHO regarding the particulars of the accused, apart from sureties.

The application, in furtherance of the HC order, was filed yesterday itself, seeking immediate release of Natasha and Devangana. However, the Karkardooma Court called for a verification report by 1 pm today.

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.

A Divisional Bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani had yesterday granted bail to 2019 Delhi riots accused Asif Iqbal Tanfa, Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita in an appeal filed under Section 21(4) of the National Investigation Agency Act, 2008 read with Section 43(D)(5) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The HC noted: “We are constrained to express, 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\SJ\RJ
