The Delhi Police on Monday has filed its reply to bail plea by, Safoora Zargar, M.Phill Student in Jamia Milia Islamia who was arrested under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in a case related to Delhi Riots during the protests against CAA. Police on Monday submitted before the Delhi High Court that 39 deliveries have taken place in Delhi prisons in the last 10 years.
Zargar’s bail plea was earlier dismissed by a trial court on June 4, compelling her to move the High Court.The Delhi Police has also maintained that pregnancy cannot be grounds to award Safoora Zargar a bail.
The police’s affidavit, signed by P.S. Khushwah, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Special Cell, added that Zargar should have kept a check on her activities during her pregnancy.
The affidavit was filed in response to Zargar’s bail plea on which notice was issued on 19 June by Justice Rajiv Shakdher.The court adjourned her bail plea Monday after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta took time for more instructions. It will now be heard Tuesday.
