Md Zubair, co-founder of Alt News, to be arrested by Delhi Police for 14 days

This morning at Patiala House Court, Zubair was brought before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Sarvaria.

Zubair’s attorney, Vrinda Grover, testified at the hearing that no hash value or clone has yet been produced by cybercrime and asked for a record of the seizure of the electronic device and hard drive.

The Special Public Prosecutor for Delhi Police, Atul Shrivastava, contended that further investigation is necessary since, according to our CDR analysis, Zubair accepted cash through the Razor gateway from Pakistan and Syria.

Sections 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as well as Section 35 of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act are the additional allegations brought against Zubair.
