Student activists and bodies on Tuesday welcomed a Delhi HC order granting bail to women’s collective Pinjra Tod members Devanagana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Jamia Millia Islamia student Asif Iqbal Tanha, who were arrested under the stringent UAPA in connection with a case related to the riots in the national capital last year.
They also demanded that all political prisoners arrested under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) be released.
Kalita and Narwal, who are students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), and Tanha were arrested in May last year.
A bench of justices Siddharth Mridul and Anup Jairam Bhambhani set aside trial court orders denying bail to the three and allowed their appeals by admitting them to regular bail.
Reacting to the court order, Safoora Zargar, a Jamia Millia Islamia scholar and co-accused in the UAPA case, said it was one of the happiest days of her life.
“Bail to Devangana, Natasha & Asif in UAPA case. One of the happiest days of my life.
