A bail order under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) is an exception. As opposed to the general criminal laws, where bail is the norm, this is a stark contrast.

As Human Rights Activist Umar Khalid’s imprisonment under the UAPA, for dissenting against discriminatory citizenship acts, finishes its third year, Teesta Setalvad describes the long legal and constitutional struggle against the UAPA’s entrenchment of state impunity. She goes on to talk about the violation of human rights & justice faced by innocent citizens, who have been incarcerated for years.
