Supreme Court hearing plea of freelance journalist, Prashant Kanojia, against his arrest for 'defamatory video' on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The Supreme court said that Kanojia is 'not a murderer' and the 'journalist should be released immediately'.

Supreme Court on verdict said that "Opinions may vary, he (Prashant) probably should not have published or written that tweet, but on what basis was he arrested."

Earlier journalist Prashant Kanojia last week shared a video of a Kanpur-based woman making allegations against Adityanath. Later Prashant was picked up from his Delhi home on Saturday morning and sent to jail in the evening.
