Singh had alleged that the publication imputed that she prepared dossier depicting JNU is a “Den of Organised Sex Racket”. Image
Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani quashed the summoning order dated January 07, 2017 issued by a MM Court.

[2019 Jamia Violence case]

#DelhiHighCourt says that though in a democracy, the dissent or fundamental right of freedom of expression cannot be suppressed but, there is no place of violent action to register one’s resistance to a Government policy either.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma made the observation while overturning the trial court's judgement discharging Sharjeel Imam, Safoora Zargar and nine others from the case.
The court says that the protest organised by the Jamia students of which Imam, Zargar and others were part of was not peaceful resistance but a violent protest which ultimately turned into riots.

“The video analysis will also reveal that the acts of resistance being presented as normal by the present respondents were not peaceful resistance but violent protest which had turned into riots,” Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma observed in the order running into 90 pages.
