A Bidar court today reserved its order in the bail application filed on behalf of the Headmistress of Shaheen School and the mother of a student, both of whom were charged with sedition for an "anti-CAA" play conducted at the school.

The bail plea filed on behalf of Fareeda Begum (Headmistress) and Najbunnissa (mother of the school student) was heard by Principal District & Sessions Judge MP Mallikarjuna today.

It is reported that the Judge asked the counsel about the script of the play. Advocate BT Venkatesh, appearing on behalf of the two arrested women, stated that the contents of the play did not amount to sedition. The Court replied that it is the responsibility of the elders to read the script before children stage it.

Opposing the bail applications, the public prosecutor argued that the women would flee the country and might also destroy the video evidence.

After hearing the parties, the Court posted the matter for orders on February 14.
