A Delhi court on Wednesday denied bail to MBA student Gulfisha Fatima and co-accused Tasleem Ahmed in the Delhi riots ‘larger conspiracy’ case in which they were charged under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

The order was passed by Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat after hearing Advocate Mehmood Pracha, appearing on behalf of Ms. Fatima and Mr. Ahmed, and Special Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad for the State.

While Ms. Gulfisha was arrested by Delhi Police on April 11, 2020, and was booked in three cases including the UAPA, she was granted bail by the court in the other two cases.
