Teli, who worked as a cook, was arrested by police in Bandipora in January 2022 on charges of stone-pelting.

However, his lawyer, Advocate Bashir Ahmed Tak, argued that the detaining authority did not attribute any specific allegation against Teli and that he was arrested on old cases and fake charges.

Justice Sanjay Dhar, presiding over the case, ordered Teli’s release from the Agra Jail.
