A Delhi Court on Saturday granted interim protection from arrest to "Gangster turned activist" Lakha Sidhana, wanted by the Delhi Police in connection with his alleged role in the Republic Day violence case. The protection has been given till July 3.

A Sessions Judge at Tis Hazari Court granted interim protection from arrest while dealing with the anticipatory bail application moved by Sidhana in FIR 96 of 2021.

An FIR was registered by the Crime Branch (Central Delhi) of the Delhi Police in connection with the violence that broke out at Red Fort on Republic Day under sec. 147, 148, 149, 152, 186, 353, 332, 307, 308, 395, 397, 427 and 188 of the IPC read with sec. 25, 27, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act, 1959 and sec. 3 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act 1984

The Delhi Police had earlier announced Rs 1 lakh as reward for information on Sidhana's whereabouts.

Deep Sidhu has been named as the primary conspirator in connection with the aforementioned FIR, however, a Delhi Court had granted bail to Sidhu in April this year.

Senior Advocate Ramesh Gupta along with Advocates Jasdeep S Dhillon, Vir Sandhu, Jaspreet Rai and APS Mander appeared on behalf of Lakha Sidhana before the Delhi Court.

It was submitted that Sidhana had no role in connection with the Red Fort incident and that it is admitted by the police that Sidhana never entered Red Fort on 26th January 2021.

In view of this, time was sought by the Delhi police to make submissions in the matter. Accordingly, the Court had adjourned the matter to July 3.  

However, while adjourning the matter, the Court directed that lakha Sidhana will not be arrested till next date of hearing i.e. July 3.
