Wednesday 22nd May 2019 06:09 EDT

The Supreme Court has granted bail to BJP youth leader Priyanka Sharma who was arrested for sharing a meme on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on her social media. After her release, Sharma said that she will not tender an apology for sharing a meme and wanted the case and take it to a logical conclusion. Sharma was released after 14 days of custody. Meanwhile, the SC pulled up the West Bengal government over the delay in her release as it had ordered her “immediate release.” After a lot of criticism, the court also waived the need for an apology.
