Several FIRs were filed against the currently suspended BJP spokesperson after her derogatory statements about Prophet Muhammad.
The court also took note of the recent threats against Sharma’s life and her protection from arrest has also been extended till the investigation is concluded by a bench of justice Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala.
All cases against Sharma will now be heard in Delhi, per a decision by the said bench.
