The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the Delhi Police to file a status report on the bail plea of safoora Zargar, a member of the Jamia Coordination Committee arrested under the Anti-Terrorism Act 'UAPA'.

Safoora has sought bail in a case related to communal violence in north-east Delhi during protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act in February.

Safoora, an MPhil student of Jamia Millia Islamia University, has been pregnant for more than four months. Justice Rajeev Shakadhar issued notice to the police and asked to file a status report on the bail plea.

The High Court listed the case for further hearing on 22 June. Safoora, who was arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police on April 10, has challenged the order of four of the lower court in the case in which the court refused to grant her bail.

The lower court had then said in its order, "When you play with embers, you cannot blame the wind for the fire that sparks." The court had said that the investigation revealed a major conspiracy and if there was evidence of conspiracy, acts and statements made by a conspirator, it was admissible against all.

However, the lower court had asked the concerned jail superintendent to provide her proper medical assistance.
