Justice Mukta Gupta allowed the bail plea of Jarwal who was arrested on 20 February, a day after the alleged incident.

The court had earlier reserved the bail plea of the Deoli legislator and said that it was a very unfortunate situation where the state and the officers feel unsafe and are being threatened by each other.

The bail plea of Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan, who was also arrested in the case on 21 February, is pending before the court.

A magisterial court had earlier denied bail to both of them, saying the matter cannot be treated in "a casual and routine manner" while dubbing them as "history-sheeters".

Jarwal had then moved a sessions court and was again denied the relief with the court saying the situation could not be more alarming when lawmakers do not respect the rule of law.
