#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
#bhimakoregaon
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)
@NIA_India
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.
