The Chhattisgarh High Court on Monday passed an interim order directing that no coercive steps should be taken against Muhammed Zubair, co-founder Altnews, in relation to the case registered against him for allegedly harassing and torturing a minor girl online by a tweet.
Zubair had moved the Chhattisgarh High Court to quash the FIR lodged in Raipur over the tweet (Muhammed Zubair v. State of Chhattisgarh).
The FIR had cited provisions of the Information Technology Act, the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
