New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has granted interim bail to Pinjra Tod activist Natasha Narwal for 3 weeks to attend her father's funeral. The high court has also stayed the stay imposed in another case of exit from Delhi. The court ordered Natasha to pay a bond of 50,000 rupees and her phone number to the concerned police station in-charge. On Sunday, Natasha Narwal's father Mahavir Narwal passed away from corona infection.
Natasha's father had retired as a senior scientist. He had petitioned natasha for bail but could not meet her daughter before her death. After the death of her father, Natasha moved the high court seeking interim bail which was granted by the court. The court asked Natasha to give her phone number to the Crime Branch and Special Cell of Delhi Police as well as the in-charge of Rohtak police station.
Natasha, who was arrested by the Delhi Police in May last year, is alleged to have been involved in the conspiracy behind the riots in February last year during the NRC-CAA agitation. They have been charged with UAPA charges. She is currently lodged in Tihar Jail in Delhi, but now that she has been granted bail, she will soon be out on bail.
