New Delhi, Apr 26 (ILNS): A Delhi Court today granted bail to Punjabi actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu in a case relating to the violence that broke out after the farmers’ tractor rally turned violent on Republic Day.
This is the second case relating to the said violence, in which Sidhu has been granted bail, in connection with the violence that occurred in and around Red Fort on January 26.
“Considering the submissions made, I am of the considered opinion that applicant’s further incarceration in the present case would bear no fruit and therefore would be unjustified, nor would the restoration of Applicant’s liberty be detrimental to the investigation being conducted by the police authorities,” said Reliever Metropolitan Magistrate Sahil Gupta of Tis Hazari Court.
The Court, while granting bail to Sidhu, directed him to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 25,000 and surety of the like amount. The Court also imposed certain conditions on Sidhu and the same are as follows:-
- That the accused person(s) shall join investigation as and when called.
- That the accused person(s) shall attend the Court as per conditions of bond to be executed.
- That the accused person(s) shall not commit a similar offence.
- That the accused person(s) shall not directly/indirectly induce, give threat, or in any way dissuade the witnesses/persons acquainted with the facts of the case and also shall not tamper with the evidence.
On April 19, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gajendra Nagar had sent Sidhu to 14-day Judicial Custody in the case relating to the Republic Day violence.
The Court had also sought response from the police over the bail application filed by Sidhu through his Counsels Abhishek Gupta and Jasdeep Dhillon and slated the matter for further hearing on April 26. ILNS/ANB/SJ/RJ
