A Delhi Court on Wednesday reserved order on the anticipatory bail plea moved on behalf of Bhupender Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary, prime accused in the alleged inflammatory and anti-Muslim sloganeering at Jantar Mantar.

Additional Sessions Judge Anil Antil also extended Chaudhary's interim protection from arrest till Saturday, August 21.

The Court reserved orders after hearing Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain appearing for Chaudhary and Additional Public Prosecutor S K Kain appearing for the Prosecution.

Last week, Chaudhary was granted protection from arrest after noting that from the Video presented by the SHO of the alleged incident, the words uttered by the applicant/accused, were not audible.

The Court also took into account the fact that the main organizer and one of the accused Ashwani Upadhyay has already been granted regular bail.

In a similar development, a Court rejected bail pleas of 3 men - Preet Singh, Deepak Singh Hindu and Vinod Sharma in connection with the alleged incident after observing that it is the duty of every citizen that while he enjoys his right to express himself, he preserves religious harmony.

A Court had however granted bail to former Delhi BJP Spokesperson and Supreme Court lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay, who was arrested and remanded to two days judicial custody in the matter.

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".

Case Title: State v. Bhupender Tomar
