The accused had been in jail since last year
All three have been lodged in Delhi jails since last year. Debangana and Natasha had earlier been granted bail by the court in a few cases, but police filed several more cases against them, which prevented them from being released on bail. All three were arrested under the UAPA in the violence case.
The order was challenging
Tanha challenged the lower court’s October 2, 2020 order. The court then dismissed the bail application alleging that the accused had played an active role.
