Delhi Anti-CAA riots accused Congress leader Ishrat Jahan granted bail of 10 days for her Nikah

Ishrat Jahan was arrested by Delhi police on February 26 for her role in inciting violence during the anti-Hindu riots in the national capital during the last week of February

Congress leader and former municipal councillor, Ishrat Jahan, who is charged under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for instigating anti-Hindu riots in Delhi, has been granted interim bail of ten days for her Nikaah.

According to the reports, Congress leader Ishrat Jahan had moved a Delhi court Thursday seeking interim bail for 30 days to get married.

On Friday, Additional Sessions Judge Parveen Singh had decided to hear her plea on May 30 after the Additional Public Prosecutor had sought more time to verify the facts of her scheduled marriage. The court has now granted her 10 days bail to get married.

Ishrat Jahan arrested for her role in Anti-Hindu riots

Ishrat Jahan was arrested by Delhi police on February 26 for her role in inciting violence during the anti-Hindu riots in the national capital during the last week of February. Soon after her arrest, Jahan was sent as to 14-day police custody.

The court had earlier observed that Ishrat Jahan did not deserve bail at the initial stage of the investigation “despite being a woman”.

Besides accused of inciting people for violence, Jahan is also held responsible for blocking Khureji Khas road along with other anti-CAA protesters on February 23 (Sunday). She has been demonstrating against the Citizenship Amendment Act for the last 50 days in Khureji Khas area.

Jahan has been charged under IPC sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly), 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 353 (assault on public servant), 332 (voluntarily causes hurt to public servant), 307 (attempt to murder), 109 (abetment), and 34 (common intention) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Arms Act.

On Saturday, far-left ‘Pinjra Tod’ activist Natasha Narwal was also booked under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for her role in inciting the anti-Hindu communal riots in Northeast Delhi in February that left 53 people dead and more than 400 injured.
