Yati

The bail denied to Dasna Devi temple Head priest and repeated hate offender Yati by the Chief Magistrate Court in Haridwar was effectively overturned by the Sessions Court Haridwar today in the Dharam Sansad case.

After much ado, Yati was arrested by Haridwar Police on January 15 whereas the contentious Dharam Sansad where speakers gave calls for genocide against the minority community took place between December 17 to December 19, 2021. While denying him bail, Chief Judicial magistrate Mukesh Arya had observed that as per the case diary, the statements made by Narsinghanand had the potential to disturb communal harmony in the area and that it is evident that his statements were inflammatory and could provoke communal disturbances and violence in the area as well. 

On February 7, Sessions Judge Vivek Bharti Sharma granted bail to Yati while observing that the offences invoked against him were punishable up to 3 years of imprisonment. The court also considered his criminal history but noted that Yati had not been convicted in any of the cases against him. Yati has been booked under sections 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc) and 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage reli­gious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or reli­gious beliefs) of the IPC.

The court also observed that the FIR was registered by someone who not present at the event and had seen videos of the event on social media.

There is another case against Yati in which he was denied bail by a local court for making derogatory comments against Musllim women.  He had alleged that Muslim women acted as mistresses of politicians
