VADODARA: Youtuber Shubham Mishra, who was arrested for allegedly abusing and threatening a stand-up comedian, was released on bail on Wednesday.
Mishra, 26, was produced before a judicial magistrate’s court on Wednesday, a day after he was formally arrested. Police did not seek his remand and requested the court to send him to judicial custody.
“We have collected evidence from him and his further interrogation was not needed, so we did not seek his custody,” said deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Sandeep Chaudhary.
Meanwhile, Mishra sought bail which was granted to him. Police said that his mobile phone has been seized for investigation and it will be sent for forensic analysis to find out if he had made more such abusive videos in the past.
Mishra had allegedly posted a video on his Instagram account hurling abuses and rape threats at stand-up comedian Agrima Joshua for a video of hers. His arrest was made after the National Commission for Women (NCW) had sought immediate action against him.
