Activists Sudha Bharadwaj to be released on certain conditions of the Court.

Bhima-Koregaon activist Sudha Bharadwaj was granted bail by the Supreme court on Tuesday. She got bail on furnishing a cash bond of Rs 50,000 cash.

The court issued a release condition on Bharadwaj's bail that she will reside in the jurisdiction of the court in Mumbai and cannot leave the city without prior permission from the court.

Lawyer and Activist Sudha Bharadwaj was arrested over three years and three months ago in 2018 in the Elgar Parishad case. under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

Her release came a day after the Supreme Court rejected a petition by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), challenging the Bombay High Court order on her bail. "we see no reason to interfere with the High Court order. Plea dismissed," a bench of Justice U.U.Lalit, SR Bhat, and Bela M Trivedi said, clearing her release.

The case was filed over sedition speeches delivered at the Elgar Parishad conclave on December 31, 2017.

Police claimed a chaotic situation followed after her speech near the Koregaon-Bhima war memorial located on the city's outskirts the very next day. The conclave, it was alleged was backed by Maoists. Anti-terror agency NIA had later taken over the case from the Pune Police.
