BREAKING| Journalist Siddique Kappan granted bail by Supreme Court To In Hathras Conspiracy Case

Journalist Siddique Kappan has been granted bail on Friday, 09/09/2022, by Supreme Court in the Hathras Conspiracy Case. Kerala journalist Siddique Kappan has been under the custody of UP Police since October 6, 2020 in Hathras conspiracy case.

Siddique Kappan was arrested in October 2020 while on his way to Hathras in Uttar Pradesh where a Dalit woman had died after allegedly being gang-raped.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit directed Kappan to remain in Delhi for the next six weeks after his release from an Uttar Pradesh prison. The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court rejected the bail application of journalist Siddique Kappan in August this year. He was booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act in the Hathras conspiracy case. A single bench of Justice Krishan Pahal had passed the rejection order.

The UP government opposed Kappan’s bail plea. They said the investigation has revealed clear links between the accused and PFI/CFI (Popular Front of India/Campus Front of India) top leadership, namely Kamal KP and Oma Salaam.
