SC gives bail to Siddique Kappan, says ‘every citizen has right to free expression’

A bench of CJI U U Lalit and Justices S Ravindra Bhat and P S Narasimha ordered he be released within three days on conditions to the satisfaction of the trial court. The SC passed the order after telling the state, “So till now, you have not shown anything (against Kappan) that was provocative.”
