    GUWAHATI: A Delhi court has rejected the bail application of ‘Pinjra Tod’ leader and student activist Devangana Kalita in Delhi riots conspiracy case under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) on Friday.

    Additional sessions judge Amitabh Rawat, in his order passed on Thursday, said the allegations against Kalita prima facie seem to be true.

    Prima facie grounds to believe allegations are true, the court observed.

    Kalita, a student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) who hails from Assam, was arrested for allegedly being part of a premeditated conspiracy behind the riots.

    On February 24 last year, communal violence broke out in northeast Delhi after clashes between citizenship law supporters and protesters spiraled out of control, leaving at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.

    The same court had dismissed the bail plea of Natasha Narwal, another member of ‘Pinjra Tod’, who was also accused under UAPA case for an alleged conspiracy behind Delhi Riots on Thursday.
