The Supreme Court refused to hear the petition filed for the arrest of former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma in the case of objectionable remarks against Mohammad Prophet. Thereafter the petitioner withdrew the application. On July 19, the Supreme Court had stayed the punitive action in all the cases registered in many states across the country in the objectionable remarks of Nupur Sharma against Mohammad Prophet. The petitioner filed an application in the Supreme Court and said that Nupur should be arrested in this case.
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court UU Lalit refused to hear the petition. When the Chief Justice refused to hear this petition filed under Article-32, the petitioner said that the decision given by the Supreme Court in the case of mob lynching should be implemented. Seeing the stand of the Chief Justice, the petitioner pleaded for withdrawal of the case and the court, while allowing it, dismissed the application.
In the case of allegedly objectionable remarks against Mohammad Prophet, the Supreme Court had ordered to transfer the FIR registered against the former BJP spokesperson across the country and the case to be registered in this matter in the future to the Delhi Police.
On August 10, the Supreme Court had given freedom to Nupur Sharma that she can approach the Delhi High Court against the case registered in Delhi in the matter.
The Supreme Court had also given protection to Nupur Sharma till the completion of the investigation. The protection given to Nupur by the Supreme Court on July 19 has been extended by the Supreme Court till the completion of the investigation. The former BJP spokesperson got a big relief from the Supreme Court on July 19.
