Republic Day Violence Case: Didn't Give Call To Go To Red Fort, Says Actor-Activist Deep Sidhu To Court
Actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu, accused in the Republic day violence case in Delhi, did not call for the protest, and there is no evidence that he mobilised the crowd to Red Fort, his lawyer said during his bail plea hearing in Delhi court on Thursday.
During the bail hearing, Advocate Abhishek Gupta, appearing on behalf of Deep Sidhu, said the call for protest was by farmer leaders, and his client is not a member of any farmers' union.
"The call for protest was by farmer leaders, I'm not a member of farmer union, no call was given by me to go to Red Fort. There is no evidence that I have mobilised the crowd," Deep Sidhu's lawyer told the court on his behalf.
"He has not indulged in a single act of violence. He left even before violence erupted. He was even helping the police, he hasn't been a part of violence. Only people who have indulged in violence can be prosecuted. Mere presence does not make him a part of unlawful assembly," argued Deep Sidhu's lawyer.
