The court had on 3rd June, 2020, granted an order restricting the police or its agent from arresting the CUPP image maker which was disregarded by the police.
in an Enrolled order, the court ordered that any “remand issued and obtained by the Inspector General of Police from any inferior court is void and of no effect.”
The matter will be heard on the 30th of June, 2020
