On Wednesday, a Delhi court granted advocate Ashwini Upadhyay bail in connection with anti-muslim remarks made at Jantar Mantar on August 8.
Upadhyay was remanded to judicial prison on Tuesday, and Metropolitan Magistrate Udbhav Kumar Jain gave him relief.
Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, who defended Upadhyay, said he would be the last person to defend someone who makes such statements.
“I will be the last to support someone who makes such a hateful statement. If we accept such speeches, the country will be entirely divided “Singh remarked.
We’re here not only because [he’s] a well-known lawyer, but also because this kind of arrest cannot be tolerated…evident it’s from the video that it’s 5 p.m…. When there is no reasonable suspicion, police cannot arbitrarily arrest somebody. I wouldn’t have defended him if the charge been made in his presence…”
Singh pointed out that the films that went viral were clearly from 5 p.m., as it was evident that it had already rained.
According to the prosecutor, it was prima facie to determine if the accused was present at the relevant moment and whether the hate speech was delivered on his behalf. “He didn’t bother bringing this to the attention of law enforcement. There’s also no bona fide there “He was adamant.
“According to his account, he has left. But it’s something that needs to be looked into. There is no evidence to support this claim. The case is still in its early stages, and it must be explored to see whether there is a link. If there is aiding” the prosecutor voiced his opinion. Singh rebutted, claiming that the prosecutor had claimed that the video analysis had not yet been completed. He stated categorically that anyone who makes a hate remark like the one shown in the video should be caught. Upadhyay’s detention, on the other hand, was deemed illegal.
