Elgar Parishad case: Temporary bail pleas of activists Varavara Rao and Shoma Sen rejected by Mumbai court

A special court in Mumbai has denied temporary bail to Elgar Parishad case accused activists Varavara Rao and Shoma Sen. Rao and Sen had sought temporary bail citing the coronavirus outbreak, claiming they suffered from multiple ailments and were at risk of contracting the infection due to their age.
Special public prosecutor (NIA) Prakash Shetty objected to the plea, and told court the two were not suffering from any life-threatening disease, and their medical reports did not show serious ailments needing hospitalisation. Two others arrested in the case, Arun Fereira and Rona Wilson, have also sought bail citing the virus outbreak. The court posted the matter for hearing on July 3.
Eleven people were arrested in the Elgar Parishad case, which relates to alleged inflammatory speeches made at the Maoist-backed conclave in Pune on December 31, 2017 that police said triggered caste violence the next day. Accepting the NIA's submissions, the court rejected the pleas of Rao and Sen.
