Supreme Court hears plea filed by veteran journalist Vinod Dua seeking quashing of the Sedition case registered against him in Himachal Pradesh.
Dua is accused of having made certain statements in his YouTube program, the Vinod Dua show, which were allegedly of the nature to incite communal hatred and lead to a breach of peace and communal disharmony.

On June 14, the Court had granted Dua protection from arrest but had refused to stay the FIR registered against Dua in Simla.
In July, the Court sought details from Himachal Pradesh Police pertaining to investigation against Dua in a sealed cover.
The Court had then decided to hear the case for final disposal and had also observed that it would quash the FIR, if Vinod Dua’s apprehensions were found to be true.
