Last week, the SC granted bail to civil rights activists Vernon Gonsalves and Arun Ferreira, who have been under arrest since 2018 in the Elgar Parishad-Bhima Koregaon violence case.
Elgar case accused Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira likely to walk out of jail under strict bail conditions
The apex court on July 28 granted bail to the two accused, noting that the actual involvement of Gonsalves and Ferreira in any terrorist act has not surfaced from any third-party communications.
The Bombay High Court had earlier rejected their bail plea in December 2021. Following this Vernon Gonsalves and Arun Ferreira approached the Supreme Court of India.
The activist had earlier moved the high court after the special NIA court had rejected his regular bail plea in September last year.
