Delhi Court Grants Ishrat Jahan Bail in UAPA Case

  • In a case involving the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, a Delhi sessions court has granted Ishrat Jahan bail, which might lead to her release from judicial prison.

  • Jahan, a former Congress councillor, has been detained since February 26, 2020, on charges of involvement in the northeast Delhi riots, according to Delhi police. She was detained at a protest site in New Delhi's Khajuri Khas against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

  • The bail was granted by Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat of the Karkardooma Court, according to Bar and Bench. The UAPA case is in response to the controversial FIR 59/2020, which names a number of activists, attorneys, and students as defendants.

  • The case indicates a bigger conspiracy behind the riots, and police assertions have been contested by media reports, notably The Wire, and other sources.
