Mohammed Zubair, Co-Founder of fact-checking website Alt News, will be produced before a Delhi court on Tuesday, as his one-day police custody remand ended today.

They were likely to seek three-day custody of Zubair to recover his mobile phone from his residence in Bengaluru.

Delhi Police had arrested Zubair on Monday under Sections 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot) and 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the Indian Penal Code.

The accused allegedly posted tweets on the micro-blogging site in 2018, which allegedly hurt the religious sentiments and promoted enmity among people.

Sources said that Zubair had initially refused to identify the tweet, which led to his arrest. The accused reportedly deleted several tweets recently, as their contents were allegedly offensive.

Police were trying to recover the deleted tweets. They suspect that the funding Zubair got was routed from across the border and had been layered, in order to keep the source hidden.
