Delhi court grants bail to JNU student Sharjeel Imam

New Delhi, September 30 (KMS): A Delhi court today granted bail to Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Sharjeel Imam.

Sharjeel Imam was detained under the black law, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in a case registered in connection with demonstrations against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

He was in custody for the last 31 months as this case was registered at the police station in New Friends Colony, New Delhi, in 2019. However, he will remain in custody due to other cases filed against him.

The court granted relief to the JNU student on furnishing a personal bond of Rs 30,000 and a surety in the like amount including other conditions.

Sharjeel Imam moved an application through advocates Talib Mustafa and Ahmad Ibrahim seeking bail. His earlier bail application was dismissed by the trial court on October 22, 2021. Later, he moved the High Court against the order.
