Delhi Riots accused Natasha Narwal granted interim bail for three weeks by Delhi High Court after father passes away from COVID-19

The Pinjra Tod activist was arrested last year in connection with the riots in Northeast Delhi and was booked under the UAPA.
The Delhi High Court on Monday granted interim bail for three weeks to Pinjra Tod member, Natasha Narwal in the Delhi riots case after her father passed away due to COVID-19.
The release will be subject to furnishing personal bond of Rs. 50,000.
She was also directed to provide her telephone number to the Station House Officer, PS Crime Branch, Special Cell, Delhi Police. She also has to furnish her phone number to SHO, police station within whose jurisdiction her address in Rohtak is, the Court further directed.
The telephone number so provided should be kept operational, the Court said.
She was also directed not to speak or post anything on social media about the pending case or issue.
Narwal moved the Court through advocate Adit Pujari seeking interim bail on account of the death of her father, Mahavir Narwal.
The prosecution did not oppose the plea.
The Court proceeded to appreciate the stand of the government.
The State fairly does not oppose the release as prayer for now in view of the circumstances elaborated, the Court further noted.
“In view of the foregoing and interest of justice, we are of the view that the release of applicant is imperative in this hour of grief and personal loss. We accordingly release Natasha Narwal on three weeks interim bail,” the Court ordered.
Court further directed that Narwal should wear a PPE kit at the time of the cremation.
“She shall surrender before the jail superintendent at the time of expiry of the term and also give RTPCR test report at the time of surrender,” it added.
Natasha is presently in judicial custody in the Delhi Riots case under UAPA.
