Red Fort violence case: Delhi Court grants bail to Khempreet Singh


New Delhi, Jul 3 (ILNS) A Delhi Court today granted bail to Khempreet Singh, accused of assaulting a policeman on duty with a spear during the January 26 violence on Red Fort by the protesting farmers.

Advocates Jaspreet Singh Rai and Jagdeep Singh Dhillon, representing the accused, informed the court that there was not even an iota of evidence against him, and that he was being falsely implicated in the case.

Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau, while granting him relief, said neither the photographs and videos relied upon by the prosecution were very clear, nor the accused Khempreet Singh could be seen attacking anyone in them.

The Judge said, “The charge ­sheet against the accused has already been filed and he is no longer required for investigation.”

The Court relied upon the observations in the bail order passed by the Delhi High Court in the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act case filed against three student activists – Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita, and Asif Iqbal Tanha.

The Court further said that most of these offences in the case are bailable in nature and 14 accused out of 18 arrested, including main conspirators Deep Sandhu and Iqbal Singh, are already out on bail.

On January 26, the protesting farmers had clashed with police during the tractor rally against the three farm laws and stormed at the Red Fort, hoisting religious flags on its domes and injuring scores of policemen. ILNS/SHV/RJ
