A Delhi court on Thursday granted protection from arrest to Shantanu Muluk in the toolkit case till March 9, news agency PTI reported. Muluk, along with Disha Ravi, is accused of sharing a “toolkit” on social media related to the farmers’ protest.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana granted the relief to the activist after the Delhi Police said it needed time to conduct further interrogation before filing a detailed reply to Muluk’s anticipatory bail plea.
The judge noted the submission and directed the police not to take any coercive action against Muluk till March 9, when the court will further hear the matter.
Muluk, along with Disha Ravi and another co-accused Nikita Jacob, was booked for alleged sedition and other charges.
