Dive In


Brought to you by The Signal

Every person has the right to free expression. He is trying to show that victim needs justice and raise a common voice. Is that a crime in eyes of law?

That’s the question raised by the Supreme Court in its decision to award bail to Siddique Kappan—who has been languishing in jail for two years under anti-terror laws. The journalist was arrested in Uttar Pradesh while he was on his way to cover the rapes in Hathras (explained here). The police claimed Kappan has links to an extremist organisation—but could not provide any real evidence in court.
