Umar Khalid, former student leader of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).
A Delhi court will hear the bail plea of Umar Khalid, accused of conspiring in the Delhi riots, on Saturday. The court will hear the arguments of the fresh bail plea filed by Khalid today. Khalid’s previous bail plea was objected to by the prosecution. Because of this, Umar Khalid withdrew his petition.
The hearing on September 23 was adjourned till October 9 as Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat was on leave. At the last hearing, Khalid’s lawyer and senior advocate Tridip Paes had argued before ASJ Rawat that the Delhi Police’s chargesheet in the case is like a web series script. Paes said that in the charge sheet, rhetoric like a veteran of sedition has been used for my client. These are like the scripts of news channels shouting at 9 pm. Understand that the investigating officer is writing all this in the charge sheet and not the script of the web series.
lack of evidence
It is the kind of material that is read and sold so that public opinion can be formed instead of lack of evidence. This is done to wrongly prosecute people in the absence of evidence. When there is no legal evidence to do so.
Case registered under UAPA
Umar Khalid has been described by the police as the mastermind behind the violence of February 2020. A case has been registered against Khalid under the stringent Anti-Terrorism UAPA Act. The same action has been taken against Khalid as well as many other accused. Riots erupted in Northeast Delhi after clashes between those who supported the CAA Act and those opposed to it.
