The wife of a journalist Prashant Kanojia, who was arrested for allegedly sharing an objectionable post against UP CM Yogi Adityanath on social media, has moved the Supreme Court. The court will hear the plea on Tuesday.
Kanojia had shared a video on Twitter where a woman is seen claiming that she had sent a marriage proposal to the CM and they have been talking through video calling.
He was picked up from his Delhi home on Saturday morning and sent to jail in the evening. The woman has also been arrested.
Police also sealed the premises of a private television news channel in Noida for allegedly running without a license, a day after arresting its chief and editor.
