Delhi High Court Denies Bail to Former PFI Chairman E Abubacker

On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court denied bail to former Popular Front of India (PFI) chairman E Abubacker, who is facing charges under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The case is being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

A bench comprising Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Manoj Jain delivered the verdict. Abubacker was arrested during a crackdown on the banned PFI last year.

Senior advocate Nitya Ramakrishna, representing Abubacker, argued that there was insufficient evidence to support the case against her client. She said that Abubacker is over 70 years old, a cancer survivor, and is battling Parkinson’s disease.

However, the NIA’s counsel countered, stating there was substantial evidence indicating that training camps were organized to prepare PFI cadres for illegal activities. The counsel also noted that Abubacker has several cases against him and expressed concern that no one would testify against him if he were released. The NIA told the court that Abubacker is receiving treatment for his multiple ailments while in custody.
