The Bombay High Court on Monday directed the National Investigation Agency to file a short affidavit in the appeal filed by lawyer and trade unionist Sudha Bharadwaj against rejection of bail sought on medical grounds by the Special Court in Mumbai. This is the second time the agency will file a reply to the said plea, as an affidavit has already been filed on June 26 strongly opposing Bharadwaj’s plea.

NIA told the court it has ample evidence to show that Bharadwaj had ‘participated in anti-national activities’, and, thus, does not deserve to be let out on bail…
The same bench also heard a plea filed by activists Vernon Gonsalves and Anand Teltumbde, Bharadwaj’s co-accused in the case, seeking coronavirus tests as the two had been in close contact with another co-accused, poet-activist Varavara Rao, in Taloja prison.
