A court In Delhi has granted protection from arrest till March 9 to Shantanu Muluk, who is accused along with Disha Ravi of allegedly being involved in sharing a "toolkit" on social media related to the farmers' protest.
According to PTI, 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 court will further hear the matter.
Muluk, along with Ravi and Nikita Jacob, was booked for alleged sedition and other charges.
