Delhi High Court Grants Bail To Safoora Zargar: Delhi Violence

On Tuesday, 23rd June,2020, the Delhi High Court issued a standard bail to M. Phill student of Jamia Milia Islamia, Safoora Zargar who was arrested during the protests against CAA under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in a case related to the Delhi Riots. The bail was granted after Delhi Police informed the Court that on humanitarian grounds, they had no objection to her release.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta has stated that he has orders to release Zargar on bail under conditions issued by the Court. He further submitted that amongst others, the Court could impose the following conditions: “The petitioner shall not engage in the activities for which she is being examined during the bail period. The complainant shall in no way affect, impede or intervene with the pending investigation,the petitioner stays out of the Delhi National Capital Region.”

However, advocate Nithya Ramakrishna, who appeared for Zargar, interjected and said Zargar may have to go to Faridabad for her check-up.

Justice Rajiv Shakhder passed the order granting bail to Zagar on the furnishing of a Rs 10,000 bail bond under the following conditions after hearing both parties:

·       Not indulging in activities for which she is being investigated;

·       She shall not hamper or interfere with the investigation under way;

·       She shall take leave of the Court before leaving the Delhi territory; and

·       She shall contact the investigating officer by phone once every 15 days.

The bench has also clarified that in no other case the order will be treated as a precedent.

Safoora Zargar, a four-month Pregnant Jamia academic, was arrested in the Delhi Riots case on April 10th, for reportedly making provocative remarks and as part of a plot to target Delhi's communal unrest.

On June 4th , Zargar's bail plea was rejected by the trial court after which she moved the High Court requesting bail in the case.
