The Police had slapped the protesters with criminal conspiracy to commit attempt to murder and arsoning charges against 9-10 students of National Students Union of India.
The Special Court, ASJ, Delhi at Patiala House Courts has granted anticipatory bail to three NSUI student leaders including NSUI former State President Akshay Lakra, Gurjot Singh and Arjun Chhaprana in criminal conspiracy for arsoning and attempt to murder for protesting outside the house of BJP President JP Nadda on 21st June.
Advocate Harpreet Singh Hora and Perdeep Naagar argued for the accused persons that on 4th July the Police has issued them a notice of arrest and now they are seeking arrest of the protestors whereas they have committed no offence.
The Court observed that the accused persons are advocates and law students having no criminal background and only involved in sloganeering. The Court also noted that the main accused are already on bail in the case and thus, the Court granted anticipatory bail to the three accused persons.
The protestors had protested outside Shri Nadda’s house on 21st June and allegedly set fire to a Khaki half pant raising slogans against the Agniveer Scheme. The Police had registered case under section 188/146/147/149/278/285/307/436/120B IPC and several accused persons were arrested in the case.
