Delhi court denies Deep Sidhu’s custody to police in fresh Red Fort violence case


A Delhi court Monday rejected Delhi Police’s plea for custodial interrogation of actor-activist Deep Sidhu in reference to a case filed by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) pertaining to the violence at Red Fort, throughout which components of the heritage construction have been reportedly broken. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gajendra Singh Nagar turned down the police demand for Sidhu’s 4-day remand and despatched him to 14-day judicial custody, saying there was no ample floor to permit the custodial interrogation.

Sidhu was arrested by Delhi Police on Saturday in relation to the Republic Day violence throughout the farmers’ tractor march towards the central authorities’s new farm legal guidelines, moments after being launched in one other case associated to violence, in which he obtained bail on Friday.

He was earlier arrested on February 9 in reference to the Red Fort violence on the Republic Day.

Sidhu’s advocate Abhishek Gupta argued that each the FIRs rested on comparable allegations, and since Sidhu had already been interrogated by the police in the matter, there was no want for fresh police remand now.

Gupta stated the investigating officers have been “acting like emperors”.

The fresh arrest was made in relation to an FIR filed by the ASI pertaining to the violence at Red Fort.
