Court grants bail to former Delhi University professor SAR Geelani in sedition case

New Delhi: Patiala House Court on Friday granted bail to former Delhi University professor SAR Geelani, who was arrested on sedition charge.

In his bail application, Geelani, arrested after police registered a case on February 10 against him for organising a meeting at the Press Club on February 9 to mark the death anniversary of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, said that he is in judicial custody since February 16 and no fruitful purpose will be served by keeping him jailed further.

Police alleged that anti-national slogans were raised by a section of Kashmiri students during the event.
