Citing a large number of cases listed before it, the Delhi High Court Friday adjourned the hearing on Northeast Delhi riots accused Gulfisha Fatima’s habeas corpus plea seeking release in a UAPA case relating to alleged “larger conspiracy” in connection with the violence.
A bench of Justices Navin Chawla and Asha Menon adjourned the hearing to July 5. On the last date of hearing, the High Court had directed Fatima’s counsel to file a rejoinder to the police response and listed the case for hearing on June 18.
The Delhi Police had opposed the habeas corpus plea by Fatima, a student activist, stating that it was not maintainable, and is a “blatant abuse of the process of law and deserves to be dismissed with cost”.
