Kerala HC grants bail to Ayesha Sulthana in sedition case


Thiruvananthapuram, Jun 25 (ILNS) The Kerala High Court today allowed anticipatory bail to film maker, actor and model Ayesha Sulthana, accused of sedition and for making assertions prejudicial to the National integration, an offence punishable under Section 153-B of the Indian Penal Code.

A Single-Judge Bench of Justice Ashok Menon noted, “The applicant has no criminal antecedents. She is not likely to flee from justice.”

The bail application has been filed on the grounds that the allegations of sedition and inciting disharmony among groups of people are totally false and unsustainable and that it is made with ulterior motive and vexatious intentions.

A written complaint was made by BJP Lakshadweep President C Abdul Khader to the District Collector of the island.

Mr Khader said a film director hailing from Chethalath island had, during a channel discussion on June 7, made serious allegations about the Central Government using ‘Biological weapon’ against the people of the island.

MP from the island Komalam Koya of CPM and Vishnu of BJP also participated in the discussion.

Sulthana submitted before the Court, “As a native of the island, I’m against the implementation of the revised and relaxed SOP bringing about the change in COVID-19 protocol for those who reach the islands.”

However, the Court observed, “there is no apparent indication in her statement, which amounts to imputations or assertions prejudicial to the national interest, nor does it propagate any class of persons against another group of persons.” ILNS/GM/RJ
