Actor Chetan Kumar Gets Bail After Arrest For Tweet Against Judge Hearing Hijab Case

Actor Chetan who was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly making critical remarks against a judge has got a bail from the court. As court is being shut due to the weekend, he will be relesed on Monday.

Confirming the news, Chetan’s wife Megha on Facebook page posted, “This is to update everyone: We had bail hearing on 23rd February for which order was reserved for today (25th February). We are happy to share that Chetan received bail order today(25th February) at 5:40 PM. However due to technical formalities, the release order is not yet issued. Owing to court closure on weekend, the further procedural work and furnishing of bail will be resumed on Monday. Chetan remains under judicial custody at least until Monday. As said by Supreme Court: “Depriving liberty even for 1 day is one too many”. We are hopeful that his release is not delayed any further. Thanks everyone for your constant support.”

Chetan landed in trouble for a Tweet posted on February 16 against a judge. Police registered a suo moto case against Chetan and booked him under Section 505 (2) for statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill-will between classes and Section 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) of the Indian Penal Code.
