The Delhi Police today opposed in a court the bail pleas of nine accused arrested in connection with a violent protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in Delhi’s Daryaganj area. The counsel for the arrested claimed that the police had detained many people but decided to arrest only 15 who have no prior antecedents.
Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar reserved its order on the bail applications of the nine persons and said the decision would be pronounced on December 28. The court will also hear on the same day the arguments on the bail plea of other six persons arrested in the case.
A magisterial court had denied bail to the 15 accused on December 23, after which they approached the sessions court for the relief.
Meanwhile, another trial court is scheduled to hear tomorrow, bail pleas of various accused who were arrested in connection with a similar protest at Seelampur in North East Delhi.
