Delhi Police arrest two people for Communal Violence. Safoora, a student, is pregnant. No arms recovered. Manish is caught with guns during the violence. Who gets charged with terrorism & is still in jail? Who gets (the milder) Arms Act and is out on bail?

Not just another day at the office for @thewire_in  after #PegasusProject  Policeman arrived today with inane inquiries. 'Who's Vinod Dua?' 'Who's Swara Bhaskar?' 'Can I see your rent agreement?' 'Can I speak to Arfa?' Asked why he'd come: "Routine check for Aug 15" Strange.
