YouTuber Roddur Roy was produced in the Bankshal court on Thursday. During the court hearing, the lawyers of both the parties got involved in a heated argument. Roddur Roy’s lawyer claimed that it is an abuse of power. On the other hand, the argument of the public prosecutor was that, in the name of freedom of speech one cannot say anything which hurts someone. After hearing both the parties, the court declared that Roddur Roy will be in police custody till June 14 due to indecent attacks on the Chief Minister.

The person, about whom Roy had commented, did not file any complaint.” The lawyer of Roddur Roy made such a comment seeking bail in the case when he was produced in the Bankshal court.

He also said that all the documents of what Roddur Roy said were in the pen drive and he wanted to submit it to the court. The lawyers of the two sides had a heated argument.
