A court in Lucknow on Monday rejected the bail plea of jailed social activist Sadaf Jafar who was arrested during a massive protest against the citizenship law. Chief Judicial Magistrate Sudesh Kumar said she is not entitled to bail as the "offences under which she has been booked" are serious in nature. Congress-general-secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had on Sunday demanded Sadaf Zafar's immediate release.
