Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair was arrested by Delhi Police on Monday, 27 June, under section 153 (promotion of enmity between different groups) of the IPC.
Alt News co-founder Pratik Sinha says Mohammed Zubair was called for questioning in a different case but arrested after this case was filed immediately.
Alt News co-founder Pratik Sinha said Mr Zubair was called to Delhi for questioning in a different case from 2020, in which the court has given him protection against arrest. But he was arrested in this new case instead, without mandatory notice, Mr Sinha said. “No FIR copy is being given to us despite repeated requests.”
