Northeast Delhi riots case: High court grants bail to JNU, Jamia student activists | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday granted bail to student activists Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha, booked under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) law, in connection with the northeast Delhi riots.
A bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Anup Jairam Bhambhani set aside the trial court’s orders denying bail to the three accused and allowed their appeals by admitting them to regular bail.
The high court directed Pinjra Tod activists Narwal, Kalita and Tanha to surrender their passports and not to offer any inducement to prosecution witnesses or tamper with the evidence in the case.
The three accused were arrested in May last year in connection with the riots in northeast Delhi.
Communal clashes had broken out in northeast Delhi on February 24 last year after violence between citizenship law supporters and protesters spiralled out of control leaving at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.
