Justice Sarang Kotwal of Bombay high court refused bail to activists Sudha Bharadwaj, Arun Ferriera and Vernon Gonsalves, arrested on August 28, 2018 under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, after Elgar Parishad, held on December 31, 2017 for having Maoist connection

A single Bench of Justice S.V. Kotwal  today rejected the Bail petition moved by activists Arun Ferreira, Sudha Bharadwaj and Vernon Gonsalves charged under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The trio was arrested on August 28, 2018 and lodged at Yerawada jail since then.

The accused were initially placed under house arrest in August last year by the Pune Police in Maharashtra and were later taken into custody on October 26, after a sessions court in Pune rejected their bail pleas.

On September 13, the High Court had refused to quash the FIR lodged against Navlakha in the 2017 Bhima-Koregaon violence and for having alleged Maoist links, while noting the facts that there was prima facie evidence in the case. The HC observed, “Considering the magnitude of the case, we feel a thorough investigation is required”.
