A Delhi Court has granted bail to Hindu Raksha Dal Chief Bhupinder Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary in the case concerning alleged inflammatory and anti-Muslim sloganeering at Jantar Mantar.

Metropolitan Magistrate Priyank Nayak granted bail to Chaudhary subject to him furnishing a bail bond of Rs. 50,000 and two sureties of like amount.

The Court took a cue from the recent order of the Delhi High Court wherein co accused Preet Singh was granted bail.

"Since the present accused/applicant Bhupender Tomar @ Pinki Chaudhary is stated to have left the spot of meeting at 1.29 PM and is also not required for interrogation, the court is of the view that he deserves to be released on bail on account of parity with co-accused Preet Singh," the Court said.

Chaudhary was sent to judicial custody in the matter earlier this month after his surrender before the Delhi Police.

Earlier, his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by a Sessions Court after observing "We are not a Taliban State. Rule of law is sacrosanct governing principle in our plural and multi cultural society."

Videos of mob at the gathering shouting slogans openly calling for the killing of Muslims had emerged on Sunday. Lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay, who has now been granted bail by the Court, claimed that the slogans were raised after the meeting organized by him was over. He had organized a meeting calling for the repeal of "colonial-era laws".
