Bengaluru:  The city civil and sessions court has rejected the bail application filed by Amulya Leona in the sedition case. The 19-year-old girl had grabbed headlines for her pro-Pakistan slogans in February. 

Vidyadhar Shirahatti, Judge of LX Additional City Civil and Sessions said the petitioner (Amulya) is also alleged to have said ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ which could affect peace, law and order. He added that the investigation officer has not completed the probe and has not filed the chargesheet, while rejecting the bail plea of Amulya Leona in relation to a sedition case registered by the city police.

He also said that if the petitioner is granted bail, there are chances that she would abscond, so the bail has been rejected. The judge added that she may also involve herself in similar offences again, which will affect the peace at large, if she was granted bail.

19-year-old girl Amulya Leona, who has become a subject of national debate following her pro-Pakistan slogans, was arrested on February 20, 2020 for shouting pro-Pakistan slogans at a rally organised to protest the CAA at Freedom Park in the city.
