A Delhi court on Thursday refused to grant bail to Delhi riots accused and former JNU student Umar Khalid. He has been charged under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in connection with the Delhi riots that shook the national capital in February 2020.
The court had on March 21 deferred the order on Khalid’s bail plea for March 23. Yesterday, his bail plea verdict was deferred for March 24, i.e. today again as the judge said that order was under correction. The prosecution had alleged a larger conspiracy in connection with the north-east Delhi riots of February 2020.
During the last hearing, Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat, who was scheduled to pronounce the order had posted the matter for today, saying it was not ready. The hearing in the case had concluded on March 3 and the court had reserved its order.
