Further information: India: Human rights activists released on bail

, Index number: ASA 20/1250/2015

Human rights activists Jaison C Cooper and Thushar Nirmal Sarathy were released on bail on 16 March, after being arrested arrested on suspicion of being involved in unlawful activities because they had ‘pro­Maoist’ materials in their homes. Amnesty International’s campaign for them was highlighted in several media reports in India, and may have contributed to raising awareness about their arbitrary detention.
