A Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Anup J. Bhambhani has granted interim bail of three weeks to Natasha Narwal to attend the last rites of her deceased father, Dr. Mahavir Narwal who succumbed to Covid-19 yesterday, on May 9.

Natasha, who has been in jail for over a year, facing under the draconian Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) charges for her alleged role in the Delhi violence case of 2020, had approached the Delhi High Court for bail to look after her diabetic father who tested positive for the virus. The order was reserved on April 28.

During the proceedings today as per  LiveLaw tweet, Justice Mridul asked if there was any member in the Narwal family who could cremate Late Dr. Mahavir. To this, Advocate Adit S Pujari said, “There is no one, your lordships. Her mother passed away 15 years ago. Her brother is down with Covid.”

The Bench also noted that her father’s body is waiting at Rohtak hospital, Haryana to be claimed and that the State does not oppose the relief prayed by Natasha Nawal.

Accordingly, she has been directed to be released on a personal bond of Rs.50,000 for a period of three weeks and is expected to surrender before the jail authorities by providing a copy of her RTPCR test report.
