January 26 violence case: Accused Deep Sidhu granted bail by Delhi Court

New Delhi: A Delhi Court has granted bail to Actor-activist Deep Sidhu who is an accused in the 26th January violence case.

Additional Sessions Judge Nilofer Abeeda Parveen put up the matter on April 15 for an order on the bail plea of Sidhu or clarification. Sidhu, accused of allegedly inciting violence near the Red Fort on Republic Day, had moved his bail petition in the court on March 30.

Delhi Police told the court that Deep Sidhu had allegedly instigated the mob on January 26 at Red Fort and allegedly disregarded the National flag.

“Sidhu was seen in the video while the national flag was thrown from there and he did not say anything in this respect. “In his presence, the national flag was disrespected,” the prosecutor said.

“He was very well aware in advance that protestors will not follow the route provided by Delhi Police. It shows his intention to create violence and disregard our national flag,” the Prosecutor added.

Delhi Police had arrested actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu on February 9 for his alleged involvement in January 26 violence in the national capital.

On Republic Day, protestors allegedly did not follow the pre-arranged route and broke barricades to enter Delhi, clashed with police and vandalised property in several parts of the national capital during the farmers’ tractor rally. They also entered the Red Fort and unfurled their flags from its ramparts.

Farmers have been protesting at the different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
