Tis Hazari court on Monday (26 April) granted bail to Deep Sidhu in the second case related to Republic day violence in the national capital, as per a report published by The Times of India.

In its bail order, the court observed that Sidhu's "further incarceration in the present case would bear no fruit and therefore would be unjustified."

Sidhu was granted bail on a personal bond of Rs 25,000 with one surety of like amount by the court.

"The sweeping power of investigation does not warrant subjecting a citizen each time to fresh investigation by the police in respect of the same incident, giving rise to one or more cognizable offences, consequent upon filing of successive FIRs whether before or after filing the final report," the order added.

Sidhu is accused of the violence at the Red Fort complex in Delhi on Republic Day during farmers' tractor rally. Sidhu had absconded after the protests turned violent.

The police had announced a Rs one lakh reward for leads on Deep Sidhu and three other accused.

Sidhu's supporters say that he is being made a scapegoat by the media and the farmers' unions who are themselves flawed. Sidhu's supporters say that he is being made a scapegoat by the media and the farmers' unions, who are themselves flawed.
