Delhi Police has been strictly directed by Delhi High Court on Thursday not to take any coercive steps, including arrest, against a man, who along with former Bigg Boss contestant Swami Om, is accused of molesting and threatening a woman.

"No coercive steps against the petitioner (be taken), including his arrest," Justice Mukta Gupta said, noting that the relief is being granted subject to the petitioner joining the investigation in the case.

The court also issued a notice to Delhi police and sought its response on the plea by accused Swami Santosh Anand, who sought anticipatory bail and protection from arrest.
