Punjabi actor and activist Deep Sidhu was again arrested on Saturday on the basis of an FIR filed by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
The arrest was made in connection with Republic Day violence in which protesting farmers desecrated Red Fort and hoist religious flags atop the historical monument.
His arrest came soon after he got bail in another case, registered by the crime branch of the Delhi Police, pertaining to the same Red Fort violence.

As the Red Fort is maintained by the ASI, it filed a separate complaint against Deep Sidhu detailing how the mob broke open the walls, caused damage, and ransacked the fort complex office.
The Punjabi actor was arrested on February 9 on charges of inciting protesters. Since then, the accused was in custody with 14 days of remand in police custody.
Special judge Neelofer Abida Perveen granted him bail on Friday on a personal bond of Rs. 30,000 and two sureties of the same amount.
