Implicated on political instructions in a made-up conspiracy. Yes, blame Fadnavis & Co for #StanSwamy institutional murder.

But our Judiciary should hang its head in shame! For rubber-stamping remand requests. Denying bail. Blindly accepting terror charges & not dismissing them.
Rest in peace #FatherStanSwamy, after these months of horrific torture you had to endure. For the crime of speaking up for tribals.

Shame on NIA, Fadnavis & Co, GOI for falsely charging 84-year old Jesuit activist-priest & jailing him and #Judiciary for denying bail repeatedly!
If this does not shake #JudicialConscience, nothing will. #FatherStanSwamy murder by incarceration should, at least now, wake up our Esteemed Hon’ble Lordships.

Fast-track cases and release #SudhaBhardwaj #GautamNavlakha #AnandTeltumbde and others framed in #BhimaKoregaon case!

#SupremeCourt to begin hearing plea by Gautam Navlakha, accused in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon violence, challenging the rejection of his plea for default bail by Bombay High Court at 10:30 am
Navlakha has sought bail on the ground that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) failed to file its chargesheet within the prescribed upper-limit of 90 days as per Section 167(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC)
The question before the Bombay High Court was whether the period of custody spent during house arrest constituted 'custody' for the purposes of section 167(2) of CrPC.

1: Amid the spread of #COVID19, the Supreme Court of India’s order directing the arrest and imprisonment of two human rights defenders, #AnandTeltumbde and #GautamNavlakha within a week, is disappointing.…
2: On one hand, the court acknowledges that overcrowded prisons present a serious threat and recommends the release of prisoners during the pandemic and then it directs 2 activists who have been critical of the government to surrender before the police and to be sent to jail.
3: Both Navlakha & Teltumbde are above 65 years old & have underlying heart ailments. The 2 activists are charged under a draconian counter-terrorism law that has repeatedly been used to silence government critics.

#UrbanNaxals - A Thread
Earlier today, Human rights activist and writers, Sudha Bharadwaj, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves, Gautam Navlakha, Varavara Rao were arrested. They have all been called “#urban Naxal”, a label that is now used even by the Pune Police to "justify" these arrests.
"#UrbanNaxal " is misnomer at best, and a deeply toxic, flawed analytical category that can in practice include any citizen who disagrees with the right-wing status quo.
