Bhima Koregaon Case: Activist Sudha Bharadwaj was granted bail by NIA court

NIA court on Wednesday granted bail to Sudha Bharadwaj after furnishing a bail bond of Rs 50000 and one or more sureties in the Bhima Koregaon case.
Special Judge DE Kothalikar also directed her to not leave Mumbai without the permission of the court.
Bharadwaj’s lawyer had sought her release on Wednesday itself. However, the judge said that the order for her release would only be issued after receiving necessary documents and their verification is done, reported ANI.
Bharadwaj was in jail since 2012. She was granted bail by a two-judge bench of the Bombay High Court on December 1. The court had asked her to approach the special National Investigation Agency court by December 8 to finalize modalities about her release and bail conditions.
Bharadwaj was among the 16 activists, lawyers, and academicians who had been arrested for allegedly conspiring to set off caste violence in a village near Pune in 2018.
The activist had applied for default bail on November 26, 2018. The charge sheet against her was filed on February 21, 2019.
Eight other accused persons in the case had also sought bail.
