Delhi HC adjourns journalist Zubair's plea against police remand for 4 weeks

The High Court has granted two weeks to the police to file its response to the petition which challenges the trial court's June 28 order granting four days of custody of Zubair to the police.

The Delhi High Court on Friday sought the stand of Delhi police on a plea by Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair challenging the legality of his police remand while adjourning the hearing for 4 weeks. It will now hear the case on July 27.

The journalist was arrested for an alleged objectionable tweet he had posted in 2018 against a Hindu deity.

The High Court has granted two weeks to the police to file its response to the petition which challenges the trial court's June 28 order granting four days of custody of Zubair to the police.

Zubair was arrested by the Delhi Police on June 27 and sent to one-day police custody by the trial court on the same day.

After being produced on the expiry of his one-day custodial interrogation, his custody was extended by another four days by Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Sarvaria.
