Amulya Leona files bail application in sedition case-1Bengaluru: A sessions court in Bengaluru has asked the prosecution to file its statement of objections, by March 24, to the bail application filed by Amulya Leona.

Amulya, 19 was  booked for sedition for allegedly raising pro-pakistan slogan during a protest held against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in Bengaluru, in presence of AIMIM Leader Asaduddin Owaisi.

She was arrested on February 20, from the event venue and an FIR was registered for offence under sections 124-A, 153 (A),153-B, 505 (2), of IPC. 

After being in police custody for five days, -she was remanded to judicial custody and is presently lodged at the Central Prison.

The bail application says that Amulya is a law abiding citizen who has has been falsely implicated and accused of the offences which she has not committed.

A bail application filed earlier before the metropolitan magistrate court, was withdrawn on March 6, after the court said it was not competent to grant bail in a case registered under charges of sedition.

The bail application before the session court says that police have registered the above case without application of a mind resulting in a prosecution of the petitioner on erroneous and non-existent grounds.
