The bail conditions were imposed on three men arrested last week for violating the lockdown when they refused to leave Shaheen Bagh protest site.
Delhi Police dispersed protestors at Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Millia Islamia Tuesday morning after the govt imposed total lockdown because of coronavirus outbreak.
