Darshan, who allegedly assaulted Pannu, said he was innocent and had no role in the incident.
All five had been booked under Section 66-A of the Information Technology (IT) Act and sections 295-A, 298 (both pertaining to hurting religious sentiments), 500 (defamation) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
