Bombay High Court on Friday refused to grant bail to lawyer and activist Sudha Bharadwaj, an accused in the Elgar Parishad-Koregaon Bhima case being probed by the National Investigation Agency. 

A bench led by Justice R.D. Dhanuka rejected an appeal filed by Bharadwaj in June, whereby she had challenged a special court’s order that denied her bail on health grounds. 

Bharadwaj, 58, had approached the high court seeking bail, saying that she suffered from diabetes and hypertension, which put her at a higher risk of contracting coronavirus at the Byculla women’s prison.
