Toolkit Case: Court To Hear Nikita Jacob's Bail Plea On March 9, Gives Delhi Police A Week To File Reply
The Patiala House Court on Tuesday gave Delhi police a week's time to file a reply to the anticipatory bail plea of Nikita Jacob, who has been accused of creating a 'toolkit' related to farmers' protest.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana allowed the police plea to grant it time till March 9 after the public prosecutor said the agency needed time to file a detailed reply to Jacob's plea.
The court is scheduled to hear the anticipatory bail plea of another co-accused, Shantanu Muluk, on March 9.
During the brief hearing held through video conferencing, senior advocate Rebecca John, appearing for Jacob, said she wanted to argue on her plea as a stand-alone case and not with Muluk's.
