Anti-CAA protests: Congress activist Sadaf Jafar, Ex-IPS officer SR Darapuri among others granted bail

Congress worker and actress Sadaf Jafar, former IPS officer SR Darapuri, activist Pawan Rao Ambedkar among many others were granted bail by a sessions court of Uttar Pradesh, today.

The Allahabad High Court had also asked the Uttar Pradesh government to respond to a petition which sought to quash an FIR filed against the Congress activist.

Sadaf Jafar was arrested on December 19, 2019, for rioting, attempt to murder and assault on public servants, during a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Lucknow.

Jafar, had live-streamed on Facebook the protest and the alleged police brutality. In the footage, Jafar was pulled away by the police forces and did not receive any response when she asked the authorities the reason for her detention.

A writ petition filed by Jafar’s sister, Naheed Varma, challenged the FIR and also sought to declare the arrest illegal. Varma demanded that Jafar be kept in hygienic conditions, along with warm clothes, mattress and bedding in jail. She also urged the investigation in the case to be conducted by an officer of the rank of Superintendent of Police, under the court’s supervision.

Earlier this week, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted about Sadaf’s arrest, as she reached Jafar’s house to meet her family members.

Bollywood celebrities including,  Mahesh Bhatt, Swara Bhasker and Sushant Singh also demanded the release of Jafar.
