CHANDIGARH: Activist Nodeep Kaur was granted bail by Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday.
In the bail plea, filed through her counsels Arshdeep Singh Cheema and Harinder Deep Singh Bains, Kaur had stated that she was falsely arraigned as accused in an FIR lodged under various sections, including 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC.
In her petition, the labour rights activist claimed that she was “targeted and falsely implicated” in the case as she was successful in generating massive support for the ongoing farmer movement against the Centre’s three new farm laws.
Kaur, who is a member of the Majdoor Adhikar Sangathan, said they mobilized people for a protest at Kundli in the Sonipat district against the Centre’s new farm laws.
The plea alleged that the mobilisation of local labourers in support of farmers annoyed the administration and a plan was devised to stifle the protest.
Kaur was arrested in Haryana’s Sonipat on January 12, the Haryana police had earlier said.
