Parliament breach1NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Tuesday opposed the bail application of Neelam Azad, arrested in connection with the Parliament security breach case, saying that she was involved in “disrupting the sovereignty and integrity” of India.

Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur reserved the order for January 18 on the application, which claimed that Azad was not required for investigation any longer and that “no purpose will be served by keeping her in custody any longer”.

The police opposed the application, claiming that the investigation was at nascent stage and that the investigation will be “hampered, hindered, obstructed” by the accused if granted bail.

“The accused persons will influence the investigation,” Special Public Prosecutor Akhand Pratap Singh said, adding that the accused was involved in the offence which is punishable up to life sentence or death penalty.

“The allegations against the accused are grave, serious and heinous in nature. The accused persons are involved in disrupting the sovereignty and integrity of India,” the prosecutor claimed.

He said that there were “strong, cogent, convincing, clinching and credible material, evidence and other documents” against the accused “which disentitles her to be released on bail”.

“There are adequate, substantial and sufficient material, evidence and other documents against the present accused which shows his involvement in the offence punishable under UAPA,” he added.
