Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita and Asif Iqbal Tanha granted bail by Delhi HC in Delhi riots case


New Delhi, Jun 15 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today granted bail to Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita and Asif Iqbal Tanha, the accused held in connection with the Delhi riots case.

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 bail was granted by the Bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Anup J Bhambani. It has been alleged that these members of the Pinjra Tod movement mobilised women in the North-East area of Delhi and created a 24×7 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. 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 B.A. (Hons.) (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\TC\SJ
