Yesterday, the Delhi Hight Court granted bail to Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha charged under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) for the Delhi riots conspiracy case. The judgement is an important one as it comes after bail was denied to them multiple times. In this Legal Capsule, Alok Prasanna, co-founder & lead, Vidhi Karnataka, analyses the bail order, what it means for others charged under UAPA, and more.
