Delhi court on Tuesday sent actor-activist Deep Sidhu, arrested in connection with Red Fort violence on Republic Day, to 14-day judicial custody.
Deep Sidhu is a prime accused of violence that took place at the Red Fort and other parts of the national capital on Republic Day.
On February 16, a Delhi court had extended the police custody of Deep Sidhu. He was arrested from Karnal bypass in Haryana on February 9. Delhi Police alleged that he was the main ‘instigator’ of Republic Day violence which took place at the Red Fort on January 26.
Delhi Police Crime Branch has been investigating all the aspects of the case. On February 9, Delhi court had sent Sidhu to 7-day police custody for interrogation.
It is pertinent to mention that, Deep Sidhu, along with another accused Iqbal Singh, were arrested. Also, both of them were taken to Red Fort to recreate the incident that took place on January 26.
The last custody of Deep was sought for multiple reasons, including his visit to Mumbai, Punjab, and Haryana to explore links and identify his supporters.
On January 26, a section of protestors clashed with the police during the tractor rally against three farm laws.
Likewise, some protesters entered the Red Fort and hoisted a religious flag next to the tricolor.
