Jantar Mantar communal sloganeering: Pinky Chaudhry withdraws anticipatory bail plea listed before Delhi High Court


New Delhi Sept 13 (ILNS) Bhupinder Tomer aka Pinki Chaudhry, President of Hindu Raksha Dal, withdrew his application for anticipatory bail listed before Delhi High Court.

The Counsel appearing for Pinki Chaudhry informed the court that the application had become infructuous as his client has been arrested on August 31.

Pinki Chaudhry is an accused in the Jantar Mantar anti-Muslim sloganeering incident at a march against Colonial-era laws in the country, called by BJP leader and Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay. Purported videos of the said event had shown people shouting slogans, threatening to harm Muslims.

On September 2, a Delhi Court had sent Pinki Chaudhry to 14 days judicial custody. Earlier,  Additional Sessions Judge Anil Antil had rejected the application for anticipatory bail, stating: “We are not a Taliban state. Rule of law is sacrosanct in the plural and multi-cultural society.”
