Activist Couple, 56 Others Arrested For Anti-CAA Protests Granted Bail
Champak is happy again after being reunited with her mother after 14 days. Ekta said spending time away from her daughter was tough. But despite this, Ekta’s opposition to the Citizenship Act remains steadfast. Champak’s paternal grandmother Sheela Tiwari said that since Modi-Yogi do not have families and children, they cannot feel the anguish of separation from them. Champak’s mother Ekta and father Ravi had been taken into custody by Varanasi Police from the Beniya Bagh area on December 19, when they were protesting against the Citizenship Act and the National Register of Citizens, along with hundreds of others. Apart from Ekta and Ravi, Varanasi Police had arrested 54 others, and now all have been granted bail.
