Bhushan moves court for Yadav’s release

New Delhi, Aug 11 (IANS) Advocate Prashant Bhushan on Tuesday approached the Delhi High Court against the “illegal detention” here of 90 people, including former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav.

Advocate Kamini Jaiswal mentioned the matter before a division bench of Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva, and said the fundamental rights of the arrested people were violated by the police action.

The bench posted the matter for 4 p.m.

Yadav and others were detained by the Delhi Police early Tuesday from a protest site at Jantar Mantar here.

Bhushan filed a habeas corpus plea for the release of the detained people and to launch an inquiry against the police personnel who arrested him.

The plea alleged that lawyers were not allowed to meet the detainees.
