Wordless Wednesday thanks the Delhi High Court for
Releasing activist Gautam Navlakha from house arrest
Gautam Navlakha was one of the five activists who had been framed unjustly by the Poona police, for having Maoist links and also for planning to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi!
Even the Supreme Court Justice D.Y. Chandrachud in his minority judgement had labeled the prosecution of the five activists ‘’criminal.”
Now even the Delhi High Court has upheld this judgement by releasing Gautam Navlakha from house arrest saying that the Maharashtra police had erred in detaining him. He was not even explained the grounds for his arrest which the High Court found was wrong! They were ordered by this court to set him free.
The highly respected activist who has worked for over 21 years for bringing back peace to Kashmir and writes for the Economic and Political Weekly said he had no grudge as the period of house arrest was put to good use!
Gautam Navalakha thanked the High Court for setting him free and said “He was thrilled to no end” as we all should be who care about justice and truth.
