"Jay Bhim. I would be visiting Shaheen Bagh this evening," Azad said in a tweet posted early on Wednesday. The Bhim Army leader was earlier barred by a Delhi court from entering Delhi till February 11 in view of the charges of arson levelled against him by the Delhi Police.

Azad was granted bail earlier this month, after being arrested on December 21 for joining an anti-CAA protest at the iconic Jama Masjid in Delhi. The court, while releasing him on a bail bond, had noted that he would not be allowed to visit the capital for four weeks as the police has charged with stoking violence and unrest.

The court modified its bail order on Tuesday and allowed Azad to visit Delhi for medical reasons and election purpose. But the bench asked him to inform the Delhi Police about his schedule. Azad welcomed the court order, saying that it has strengthened one's belief in the judicial system. "This is a victory of the Constitution. I will be visiting Delhi and will not allow the BJP, which is trying to break the nation, from forming the next government in Delhi," he had said.
