The 15 are charged under 10 sections of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 1967 (UAPA), whose legal processes, as @abhinavsekhri10's July 2020 analysis showed, render a person’s guilt or innocence irrelevant. article-14.com/post/how-the-u…

#NIA never sought #StanSwamy's custody, alleged he was "a member of the CPI Maoist” & recd Rs 8 lakh. It said an org for prisoners, which he set up with #SudhaBharadwaj, was a Maoist front. @ChitrangadaC wrote how he served dispossessed for 50 yrs article-14.com/post/why-an-ag…

I spent half the weekend ranting about that case to friends. Basically it was "A man is in jail for weeks for a joke he neither told nor was intending to tell and has been denied bail repeatedly by the judge, just because of his name. Kafka couldn't dream this up." On loop.

The world call now stop citing Minority Report as the reference for arresting people for crimes before they happen. #MunawarFaruqui case is even more dystopian. He is ostensibly under arrest because the local police think he might tell "insulting" jokes and threaten public order

The selfless #SudhaBharadwaj has spent 3 years in jail after #ArnabGoswami’s nauseating witchhunt. Now, Bombay Police are returning the favour by outing tens of pages of WhatsApp conversations in the #BARCGhotala which reveal how the media is a key player in ‘The Grand Project’.
The superhit Friday release. #BARCGhotala
When #ArnabGoswami was first implicated in #TRPGhotala, India’s brain-dead TV gasbags were all triumphantly jumping around in glee, running the news for days. Has the appearance of the initials “AS”—and the names “Doval”, “Smriti” and “Javdekar”—taken the wind out of the blimps?

Supreme Court Bench headed by Justice UU Lalit to shortly hear the plea filed against the Bombay HC order which dismissed the petition seeking for interim bail on medical grounds of lawyer-activist Sudha Bharadwaj

#SudhaBhardwaj
Bharadwaj’s counsel Ragini Ahuja had earlier told the Bombay HC that the activist had been in jail for over two years.

Ahuja had said Bharadwaj had comorbidities that put her at a higher risk of contracting the virus. #COVID19
NIA counsel, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, argued against giving bail to Bharadwaj saying that if her condition required hospital care, the state would provide for it.
