"In any case, where proceeding has been instituted on the police report, Magistrate shall without delay furnish to the accused, free of cost copies of any other documents or relevant extract thereof forwarded to the Magistrate with police report" the section 207 states.

Five persons, including Surendra Gadling and Arun Ferreira, were arrested in connection with the Bhima Koregaon case in August 2018. (ANI)
