Delhi HC denies protection to Madhu Kishwar

IN Media Watch Briefs | 12/09/2017
The Delhi High Court has refused  to grant protection from arrest to activist Madhu Kishwar in a criminal defamation case brought by Rising Kashmir  editor-in-chief Shujaat Bukhari. Kishwar wanted interim protection because a non bailable warrant was issued against her by a Srinagar Court.

No interim protection," the judge is quoted as saying.
