The Delhi High Court on Friday granted interim protection from arrest to Mumbai-based television journalist in a rape case provided he joins the police investigation.
''Petitioner be not arrested till the next date of hearing subject to him joining the investigation as and when directed,'' the high court said.
It listed the matter for further hearing on April 16.
Hiremath has approached the high court after his earlier anticipatory bail plea was dismissed by a trial court here in March.
The counsel for the 28-year-old man claimed before the court that that there had been a history of previous sexual relationship between the accused and the complainant.
