A Delhi court, on Saturday dismissed the bail application of Bhim Army Chief Chandrasekhar Azad Ravan, who was arrested from outside the Jama Masjid on Saturday morning. He has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.
“At this stage, this Court is of the considered view that substantial grounds for granting bail to the accused are not made out,” the order read.
“Accordingly, the application of accused for grant of bail stands dismissed and accused be sent to judicial custody for 14 days and thereafter be produced before the concerned Court for further orders,” it added.
The police had said that Azad has been instigating the crowd and had also called for unlawful assembly which later ended up in arson and rioting.
Meanwhile, on Friday, Azad had urged his supporters to carry on the protest against the contentious citizenship law peacefully.
“Those who are indulging in violence are not our people. Our peaceful protest continues at the historic Jama Masjid. Ambedkarites do not indulge in violence,” Azad had tweeted.
