Devangana Kalita and Natasha Narwal have finally been released from Tihar Central Jail today evening after Delhi High Court granted Devangana, Natasha and Asif bail in FIR 59/2020 which charged them with UAPA. They marched out shouting slogans of "Saare pinjron ko todenge, itihaas ki dhaara modenge" and "Inquilab Zindabad", into the open skies and streets of Delhi. With great, love, joy, solidarity and tears we welcome back Natasha and Devangana as they walk out of jail tonight.

We welcome the decision of the Delhi Sessions Court to grant the release warrant for Devangana, Natasha and Asif. This comes two days after they were granted bail by the Delhi High Court. We hope to see them released by today. 2/n We have also seen how the Delhi Police has tried to delay the release of the three student activists by asking for up to 6 days for the verification of sureties and permanent addresses.

It has now been 35 hours since the High Court order ordering the release of Natasha, Devangana and Asif, yet they haven’t walked free. It is disheartening that this comes despite the fact that as per law; accused have to be released within 24 hours of submission of bail bonds. Image Yesterday’s bail order from the Delhi High Court bench comprising of Justice Siddharth Mridul & Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani noted that "the right to protest is not outlawed and cannot be termed as a "terrorist act.” Image

JAMIA COORDINATION COMMITTEE. Appeal to students! The attack on educational institutions one after another, by this govt clearly brings out their nefarious agenda of stifling debate & dissent in this country by disintegrating the whole institution of education & idea behind Uni. This idea is the idea of the university, the idea of 'lado padhai karne ko, padho samaj badalne ko', the idea of 'educate, organise, agitate' and the idea of 'padhenge, ladenge'.
