Kashmiri students bail plea rejected in sedition case

Belagavi: The fifth additional district and sessions court here on Monday rejected the bail plea of three Kashmiri students who were arrested on sedition charges.
After hearing the arguments over the bail petition on March 5, Judge K N Gangadhar posted it for March 9. On Monday, the judge rejected the bail petition as the investigation into this case is in initial stage.
On March 5, advocate B T Venkatesh from Bengaluru had urged the court to grant bail for three students, who were arrested in the background of a video in which they allegedly raised pro-Pakistan slogans.
Public prosecutor Sumitra Anchatageri had requested the court to reject the bail petition.
The students are in judicial custody, and are lodged in Hindalaga jail in Belagavi.
