NIA cites Navlakha-ISI links to oppose house arrest order | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday moved the Supreme Court seeking vacation of the November 11 order for keeping UAPA accused Gautam Navlakha under house arrest by narrating three important aspects – the so-called house was “unsafe” being a library under the Communist party of India, his health report suffered bias as it was prepared by a panel doctors that included his brother-in-law and that he had links with Pakistan’s nefarious Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Navlakha’s counsel Nithya Ramakrishnan complained to CJI D Y Chandrachud-led bench that the accused has not yet been shifted to the house arrest location in breach of the SC’s November 11 directions and requested urgent listing of his application before a bench headed by Justice K M Joseph for expeditious implementation of the order.
When the bench seemed to agree for listing of Navalakha’s application on Friday, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta intervened and said NIA has found several incidents of deliberate suppression by the accused to mislead the court into passing an order of house arrest, even though his health conditions are such that it could be easily managed in Taloja Jail hospital.
The court agreed to list applications of Navlakha and NIA together before a bench on Friday. NIA said the house chosen by Navalakha for house arrest purposes is a public library “in the name of secretary of Communist Party” and it is unsafe from security aspect to house Navlakha and his companion Sabha Husain there.
