HC sets aside bail granted to Thaha Fasal in UAPA case

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Monday set aside the order passed by by special NIA Court in Kochi granting bail to Thaha Fasal in a UAPA case for alleged Maoist links.

The court however has not cancelled the bail granted to Alan Shuhaib, who was also arrested along with Thaha in November 2019.

The High Court said that it was not interfering with the bail granting to Alan at the moment, considering his young age and also different degree of involvement.

The High Court has directed Thaha to surrender before the trial court.

The High Court has also given a direction to the NIA court to complete the trial within one year. The court has also set aside the finding of the trial court that no prima facie case was made out against the accused.
