UAPA: Supreme Court cancels bail of 8 PFI men caught with photos of RSS leaders

A Bench of Justices Bela M Trivedi and Pankaj Mithal said that given the gravity of the offence and the fact that only 1.5 years had been spent in incarceration, the Court could interfere and cancel their bail.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday cancelled the bail granted by the Madras High Court to eight men booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for being members of banned Popular Front of India (PFI) and having conspired to commit terrorist acts across the country.
