A Delhi court on Tuesday issued fresh summons to Deep Sidhu and others in connection with the Republic Day violence case at Red Fort.
A Delhi court on Tuesday issued fresh summons to actor-activist Deep Sidhu and other accused in the Republic Day violence case. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gajendra Singh Nagar directed all the accused to appear before it on July 12 through video conference.
Meanwhile, accused Harjot Singh appeared before Delhi Court via video conferencing on pursuance of summons issued against him.
The Court issued fresh summons to Deep Sidhu and other accused when it was apprised by the counsel that the summons was not served to them.
The development came after the Court had taken cognizance of the Delhi Police's chargesheet against Deep Sidhu and 15 others and stated that all the accused persons need to appear before the Court through VC mode on June 29.
The Court had also issued a production warrant against Maninder Singh and Khempreet Singh, who are still in judicial custody. Both of them today were presented before the Court virtually.
The Court said that it is taking cognisance of the chargesheet relating to various sections of the Indian Penal Code, except those sections for which sanction is still awaited.
Sanction under the Epidemic Diseases Act, and the Disaster Management Act is still awaited from concerned authorities.
The chargesheet has named Deep Sidhu and others as accused in the case. Police have named 16 persons including Deep Sidhu, Iqbal Singh, Maninder Moni and Khempreet as accused in the case.
On January 26, protesting farmers clashed with police during the tractor rally against three farm laws and stormed into the Red Fort, hoisting religious flags on its domes and injuring scores of policemen.
Sidhu, who is accused of being the key conspirator of the violence, is currently out on bail.
