“Mohammed Zubair, the co-founder of fact checking website Alt News, did not edit any images but used a still image from a Hindi film in his tweet, and his arrest over this borders on absurdity, his lawyers told a Delhi court on Tuesday. The Delhi Police produced Zubair before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Savaria, who sent him to four-day police custody. The police had moved a five-day police custody application, arguing that they need to get access to his laptop to further investigate the case. The police submitted that Zubair had edited the image used in the tweet.
