LOC against Rana Ayyub issued in haste; violated right to travel, freedom of speech: Delhi High Court

The Court said that an LOC is a coercive measure to make a person surrender and, therefore, it is to be issued in cases where the accused is deliberately evading summons or arrest.

The Delhi High Court on Monday held that the Look Out Circular (LOC) issued by Enforcement Directorate (ED) preventing journalist Rana Ayyub from travelling abroad was issued in haste and infringed on her human right to travel abroad and exercise freedom of speech and expression.
