SC grants bail to journalist Prashant Kanojia

news

The Supreme Court today granted bail to journalist Prashant Kanojia who was arrested for allegedly making objectionable comments against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on social media.

A vacation bench, comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and Ajay Rastogi, said Right to Liberty, a fundamental right, is non-negotiable. The bench, however, said granting bail does not mean that it approves of the journalist's tweets or posts on social media. The court was hearing a plea challenging the arrest of the journalist.
