NEW DELHI: Activist Umar Khalid on Monday argued before the Delhi High Court, seeking bail in the Delhi riots and larger conspiracy case. He submitted that the protestors wish to be a part of the country and were opposing allegedly discriminatory criteria of granting/ denying citizenship to a certain class of persons.
The division bench comprising Justices Siddharth Mridul and Rajnish Bhatnagar is hearing the appeal filed by Umar Khalid challenging the Trial Court’s order refusing him bail in a case involving UAPA charges alleging a larger conspiracy in the riots of 2020.
The accused was arrested on 13 September 2020 and has been under custody since. Earlier, while issuing notice in the appeal, the Court had said that the speech delivered by Umar Khalid at Amravati, was obnoxious, hateful, offensive, and prima facie not acceptable.
