Riots in Delhi: Previously, Ishrat Jahan was given 10 days bail to get married (file)

Former Congressional Councilor Ishrat Jahan arrested under the Strict Prevention of Unlawful Activities Act (UAPA), requested bail on Monday in the case of the rioting conspiracy in northeast Delhi and asked a court in the national capital whether it was wrong to have political affiliation.

« There is no evidence. Is It Wrong to Have Political Affiliation? What I have done wrong? Suffocating voices were the reason for the imposition of the UAPA Rohat.

Ishrat Jahan was a Congress Councilor from 2012 to 2017 and, according to her sister Sarwer Jahan, was a member of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

Mr Teotia argued for her on bail on the grounds that there was no evidence of her connection to the co-defendants and that the witnesses had been planted.

During the course of the proceedings, the lawyer disagreed with the prosecution’s allegations that Ishrat Jahan helped finance the protest and the Violence helped, it only spun one story and her spending before and during the violence had not changed.

Meanwhile, Special Prosecutor Amit Prasad asked for the video that the defendants’ lawyers were referring to be made available.

Ishrat Jahan, along with several others, was placed under anti-terrorism law in the case, accused of being the « masterminds » of the February 2020 violence r 53 people were killed and over 700 injured.

This is the first time the defendant has sought regular bail on this matter. In November last year, the court denied her bail because of the seriousness of the crime, including those filed under UAPA.

Previously, Ishrat Jahan was given 10 days bail to get married and was instructed not to manipulate the evidence or influence the witnesses. Ms. Jahan’s marriage was scheduled for June 12, 2020.

In addition to Ishrat Jahan, Jamia Millia Islamia student Asif Iqbal Tanha, JNU students Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita, former student leader Umar Khalid, members of the Jamia Coordination Committee Safoora Zargar, former AAP council member Tahir Hussain and several others were also booked under the counterterrorism law in the case.

The Delhi Supreme Court recently had Mr. Tanha, Ms. Narwal and Ms. Kalita in released the case on bail, stating that the state had blurred the line between the right to protest and terrorist activity in order to suppress dissent.
