The Student of JNU Sharjeel Imam had filed an Application for granting Interim Bail in two cases where he was charged under Section 124A of Indian Penal Code.

In the application he cited the Order of Supreme Court passed on May 11 and he filed application in High Court on May 12.

“In view of the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s directions, the hindrance raised by the Ld. Special Court in the Impugned Order stands obviated, and observations surrounding the Offence under Section 124-A Indian Penal Code cannot be taken into consideration in the Proceedings against the Appellant pending the final outcome of the Constitutional challenges to the Section,” said by Counsel of Imam.

Imam was detained on the ground that he gave an inflammatory and instigating speeches on Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 and National Register of Citizens against Government so he was arrested from Bihar but he made his speeches in Jamia Milia Islamia University.

He filed Application against the pending Bail Plea in two Cases one filed by Crime Branch the other one is filed in New Friends Colony Police station by Police for protesting violently in 2019 against Citizenship Amendment Act.

“The Petitioner meets the proverbial ‘triple test’ for Bail. Moreover, it is not the Case of the Prosecution that the Applicant is a flight risk, at risk of influencing any witnesses or tampering any Evidence,” the Application reads.

Allahabad High Court has granted him Bail against his speech in Aligarh Muslim University. But he was charged as conspirator of Delhi Riots.
