A Delhi court on June 28 issued fresh summons to actor-activist Deep Sidhu and other accused in the Republic Day violence case.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gajendra Singh Nagar directed all the accused to appear before it on July 12 through video conference.

The court issued fresh summons after it was informed that the summons issued earlier were not received by the accused. On June 19, the judge had taken cognizance of the charge sheet in the case and summoned all the accused on June 29.

However, Harjot Singh was the only accused who appeared before the court on June 19.

Counsels for the other accused apprised the court that their clients have not been served the summons yet.
