In the meantime, the Delhi High Court has given austere orders to protect a witness connected to the case. Justice Suresh K Kait asked the Delhi government to apply for the same from June 2, under the Witness Protection Scheme 2018, reports PTI.

The high court has stated that the competent authority would decide within a week from when the application is filed, while Delhi Police would be protecting the witness until then. Earlier, the court had scrapped a protection plea from the witness, along with his lawyers, Ajay Kumar Pipaniya and Pallavi Pipaniya, saying that he too was beaten up by Sushil during the incident at the stadium.
