A Delhi court on Friday granted bail to fact-checker and Alt news co-founder Mohammad Zubair, who was bombarded with FIRs over the past few weeks, in the 2018 tweet case but he will stay in jail over two more cases registered in Uttar Pradesh.

Zubair has granted bail days after the Delhi Police arrested him for a 2018 tweet for allegedly hurting Hindu religious sentiments.

The Sessions Patiala Court granted bail to the Alt News journalist on a personal bond of Rs 50,000.

Mohammed Zubir should not leave the country without the court’s permission, Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Devender Kumar Jangala said.

Zubair moved the Supreme Court on Thursday requesting the Supreme Court to cancel six cases filed against him by the Uttar Pradesh Police.

Zubair, who was arrested on June 27, is currently in Delhi’s Tihar Jail. He was in police custody since his arrest in the 2018 tweet case and several other cases are also pending against Zubair under similar charges in Sitapur, Ghaziabad, Muzaffarnagar, and Lakhimpur Kheri.

Zubair has been booked under Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and Section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult religion of any class). Other sections like 295A, 201 and 120B and Section 35 of the Foreign (Contribution) Regulation Act were also slapped on him.

The Delhi Police had registered a case against Zubair on a complaint, which alleged he had tweeted a controversial image with the purpose of deliberately insulting Hindu gods.

The Supreme Court granted Zubair bail in Sitapur case, which was registered after the journalist tweeted that Yati Narsinghanand, Bajrang Muni and Anand Swaroop were hate-mongers.

Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday engaged in a Twitter spat with Kashmir Police after the People’s Democratic Party Chief claimed that she was placed under house arrest during Home Minister Amit Shah’s Jammu and Kashmir visit yesterday.

Mufti claimed she had been placed under house arrest at her residence at Srinagar’s Gupkar Road and was not being allowed to go for a wedding in Pattan near Srinagar.

The police refuted Mufti’s house arrest claim and said she was free to travel anywhere. Responding to her claim after 40 minutes, the Police tweeted that there were no restrictions on her travel to Pattan. She herself had locked the gate from inside, the Srinagar police claimed in the tweet.

Taking to Twitter, Mufti said since Amit Shah was travelling to Baramulla, 54 km from Srinagar, in north Kashmir and addressing a public rally there, she had been stopped from attending a wedding of a party worker in Pattan, 27 km from Srinagar, she claimed in her tweet.

While Home Minister is going around Kashmir beating drums of normalcy, she was under house arrest for simply wanting to visit Pattan for a worker’s wedding, she said in a tweet tagging the Home Minister and Lt Governor Manoj Sinha.

Mufti also said if an ex-CM’s fundamental rights can be suspended so easily, one can’t even imagine the plight of a commoner. She also shared pictures of the alleged locking main gate of her residence.

During his ongoing three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah assessed the security situation in a meeting held with senior officials in Srinagar on Wednesday.

As of now, Shah has addressed a rally in Rajouri and will be addressing another public meeting in Baramulla today.
