The Rajasthan High Court on Saturday ordered no coercive action should be against News18 journalist Aman Chopra in connection with the cases against him over his show on the demolition of temples in Alwar.

The order was passed in the morning and a few hours later officials from the Rajasthan Police showed up at Chopra’s residence in Noida, Uttar Pradesh to arrest him. Shortly thereafter, officials from the UP Police also reached the location. The Rajasthan Police reportedly pasted the arrest warrant outside Chopra’s residence and were escorted out by the UP Police.

Several journalists tweeted support for Chopra using the hashtag #IStandWithAmanChopra.
