Natasha Narwal’s brother Aakash is also in isiolation after he tested positive for Covid. “Therefore, there is nobody else in the family to perform the last rites and cremation,” the court observed.
“In the interest of justice, we are of the view that the release of applicant is imperative in this hour of grief and personal loss,” the court further said.
