“We are of the prima facie opinion that interim protection till the matter is heard at length deserves to be granted. The police shall not take any coercive action including arrest against the applicants (Ranaut and Chandel),” the Court said.

The High Court said it would consider the issue at length on the next date and posted the matter for further hearing on January 11.
