UP Police summon fact-checker Mohammed Zubair in case filed last year

New Delhi/IBNS: Fact-checker Mohammed Zubair has been summoned by Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur police in connection with a case registered against him in September last year.

The complaint had been filed by a Sudarshan News employee over a tweet made by Zubair on May 14, 2021.

The warrant comes a day after the Supreme Court granted five days of interim bail to Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair in a case registered in Sitapur for hurting religious sentiments through a tweet.

Zubair was arrested by Delhi Police on Jun 27.

In Mar 2018, Zubair shared a meme that used a screengrab from Hrishikesh Mukherjee's classic 'Kissi Se Na Kehna', showing a hotel signboard that read 'Hanuman Hotel' in Hindi, but paint marks indicated it was earlier named 'Honeymoon Hotel'.
