Forthright and excellent piece by @nandinisundar, telling it exactly like it is. "The major threat this government fears is the Constitution, in whose name all these activists have worked, and which the ruling party wants to gut."

“All undertrial prisoners are presumed to be innocent, even those booked under Special Acts, and hence, they must be given the same benefits of relief as those who are booked under other sections of the Indian Penal Code,” the statement said. https://thewire.in/law/memorandum-sudha-bharadwaj-shoma-sen

As Byculla Jail faces spread of Covid-19, Justice PB Sawant is among 660 concerned citizens to request release of prisoners of conscience Sudha Bharadwaj and Shoma Sen.
Political prisoners are being freed worldwide, this should also happen in India.
With the rampant spread of Coronavirus in Indian Prisons, the health of inmates is at unprecedented risk. We ask the HPC to release Sudha Chaudhary and Shoma Sen from Byculla Jail. It is highly condemnable to keep elderly men and women incarcerated. http://shorturl.at/egiPR

जिस Byculla Jail में वो कैद हैं वहाँ भी #COVID19 फैल रहा है। उन्हें जल्दी से जल्दी जेल से निकाला जाए।
This incarceration of the cream of our youth should not be countenanced. https://twitter.com/akhilkatyal/status/1264347452968038400
.@samzsays exceeds his usual level of acerbic brilliance in this latest contribution, which definitely deserves a "Milky Whey" prize for capturing the essence of today's India. https://www.thehindu.com/society/ideas-for-the-19th-tranche-of-relief/article31647689.ece/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
