Tablighi Jamaat: Delhi court grants bail to 82 Bangladeshis

A Delhi court on Friday (July 10) granted bail to 82 Bangladeshi nationals who were chargesheeted for attending Tablighi Jamaat congregation in the Indian capital for allegedly violating visa conditions, indulging in missionary activities illegally and violating government guidelines, issued in the wake of Covid-19 outbreak.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gurmohina Kaur granted the relief to the Bangladeshis on furnishing a personal bond of Rs 10,000 each.

The accused will file their plea bargaining applications on Friday, said advocate Ashima Mandla and Mandakini Singh, appearing for the foreign nationals. Under plea bargaining, the accused plead guilty to the offence praying for a lesser punishment.

The Criminal Procedure of Code allows plea bargaining for cases where the maximum punishment is imprisonment for seven years, where offences don’t affect the socio-economic conditions of the society and when the offences are not committed against a woman or a child below 14 years.

During the hearing, all the foreign nationals were produced before the court through video conferencing.
