Lucknow: Congress spokesperson Sadaf Jafar and former IPS officer SR Darapuri, arrested in connection with violence during anti-CAA protests in the Uttar Pradesh capital in December, were released from jail on Tuesday.
A local court gave them bail on Saturday but, they could be released only three days later because some formalities could not be completed, sources said.
On being released, Jadaf said that she would continue to protest against the CAA until the "inhuman" law is withdrawn.
