New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday granted anticipatory bail to senior journalist Vinod Dua in a case pertaining to alleged defamatory remarks passed by him on his YouTube show.

Dua had moved the court, fearing arrest after the Delhi Police registered a FIR against him on a complaint filed by Delhi BJP spokesperson Naveen Kumar on June 4 at Laxmi Nagar Police Station in east Delhi. Kumar claimed that Dua committed offences of public nuisance, mischief, printing, and engraving matters known to be defamatory, and intentional insults with intent to provoke breach of peace.

Additional Session Judge Vineeta Goyal granted anticipatory bail to Dua and directed the police to not take any coercive steps against him till June 29, the next date of hearing, while asking the journalist to join the investigation and cooperate with the police.
