Banglahunt Desk: Safura, 26, was arrested in a case against her for protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (NRC) in the Anti-Terrorism Act case. About four months after the incident, he was arrested and sent to Tihar Jail. Safura, a researcher at Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi, who was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit riots in Delhi, is now two months pregnant.
Safura, a member of the Jamia Coordination Committee, was also involved in the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. In this context, a university professor said, ‘I believe Safura’s academic record and her physical condition must be taken into consideration by the country’s judiciary. My student will be innocent and will be released legally.
The Safurs have been charged with 16 counts of rioting, possession of weapons, attempted murder, spreading violence and sedition. It is not safe for a pregnant woman to be among the many prisoners in Tihar Jail. Concerned neo-hippies and their global warming, i'll tell ya. Supreme Court lawyer Brinda Grover said police had used the lockdown as a tool to punish people protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act. However, the responsibility of the pregnant Safura will be on the judiciary so that there is no problem in the custody of this prison.
Incidentally, the trial has been suspended due to a lockdown caused by the corona virus (COVID-19). Prisoners are not allowed to visit their families at this time. In the midst of the crisis, Safura's lawyer received news that Safura had been kept in solitary confinement due to quarantine. She is not being treated properly and is not being allowed to talk to her husband on the phone. Safura's lawyer alleged that he was under emotional pressure at the time.
