A Delhi Court today granted environmental activist Subham Kar Chaudhuri protection in Toolkit case until Mar 15 on state's submission of no objection to such extension.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Irfan Ahmed submitted that a co-accused person's application was coming up for hearing on Mar 15 and that he had no objection to the extension of interim protection. Chaudhari was granted transit bail by Bombay High Court earlier this month.

Goa based environmental activist Subham Kar Chaudhuri had moved Patiala House Court in New Delhi for grant of anticipatory bail on the expiry of his transit anticipatory bail granted to him by the Bombay High Court. Chaudhuri, member of the organization "extinction rebellion" is apprehending arrest in connection with the Toolkit case.

The High Court had granted protection to Chaudhuri for a period of 10 days, starting from 3rd March to 12th March 2021, enabling him to approach the competent court for seeking appropriate relief.

Single judge bench comprising of Justice M.S. Jawalkar of the Bombay High Court (Goa Bench) on 3rd March 2021 granted 10 days transit anticipatory bail to Chaudhuri in connection with FIR 49/2021 registered by Delhi Police's Cyber Cell under sec. 124A, 153A and 120B of Indian Penal Code.

It was submitted by Chaudhuri that he was falsely implicated in the case and has no connection with the online toolkit.

"The apprehension of arrest is made out by the applicant. The reasons for apprehension of arrest is justified in the facts and circumstances set out. Admittedly, FIR is lodged at New Delhi and any regular application for anticipatory bail under sec. 438 of CrPC would be considered by the competent court at Delhi. Therefore, the applicant is entitled for protection by way of granting transit bail to approach the competent authority for seeking appropriate reliefs," the bench ordered
