Delhi court dismisses Nayeem’s bail application



A Delhi court, today, dismissed the bail plea filed by incarcerated senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Nayeem Ahmad Khan in a fake case.

Nayeem Ahmed Khan was arrested by the Indian authorities from his Srinagar residence on July 17, 2017 for supporting the freedom movement. He was then rushed to New Delhi’s Tihar jail where he has been languishing for the past over five years.

Additional Sessions Judge Shailender Malik of Patiala House Courts said that charges have already been framed against Khan – which have not been stayed or set aside by the High Court and this court cannot re-appreciate the evidence at the stage of bail.

The case has been registered under various sections of the draconian Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Indian Penal Code.—KMS
