Toolkit: Nikita Jacob’s anticipatory bail plea to be heard on March 9
New Delhi, Mar 02: The Delhi High Court today gave the Delhi police time to file a response on the plea by advocate Nikita Jacob seeking anticipatory bail in the toolkit case.
The matter will come up for hearing next on March 9. The police have accused Jacob of helping edit the social media toolkit on the farmer protest.
The police said that the toolkit was created in support of the farmer protest. The police also liked the same with the violence that broke out on Republic Day.
