Mamata morphed image: SC grants bail to BJP activist

news

The Supreme Court today granted bail to BJP activist Priyanka Sharma arrested for allegedly posting a morphed image of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on social media.

The Court, however, asked Priyanka Sharma to apologise, while observing that freedom of speech ends when it infringes upon others' rights.

A vacation bench comprising justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna said Priyanka Sharma, a BJP Yuva Morcha leader, will apologise in writing upon her release from jail.

During the hearing, the bench observed that since Sharma is a member of a political party, the insinuation of posting such a picture will be different from those shared by common people.

Priyanka Sharma was arrested on 10th of this month by the West Bengal Police and was sent to two weeks' judicial custody. (AIR NEWS)
