Bengaluru court rejects bail for anti-CAA student activist

A local court rejected the bail application of controversial student activist Amulya Leona on the ground that she may abscond if set free, a police official said on Thursday.

“The 60th city civil and sessions court judge Vidyadhara Shirahatti on Wednesday rejected Amulya’s bail plea fearing as she may flee if granted bail,” a police officer dealing with the sedition case against her said.

The 19-year-old activist was arrested on February 20 for shouting “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans at an anti-CAA rally, organized by the Hindu-Muslim-Sikh-Issai Federation in the city where AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi from Hyderabad was present with others leaders.

Later, the police filed a sedition case against Amulya for indulging in anti-national activities and instigating her friends to stage protest rallies and demonstrations against the ruling BJP government in the state and at the Centre.

As the investigation into the sedition case was underway and a charge sheet is yet to be filed against her, the judge said the accused may participate in similar anti-national events, affecting peace and harmony.

The state police opposed Amulya’s bail in the Karnataka High Court on May 19, claiming she was influential and may threaten witnesses if set free from judicial custody.
