New Delhi: The Delhi Police has made a submission in a Delhi court questioning the merit of the bail application filed by former JNU student Umar Khalid's bail application in connection with the Northeast Delhi riots case.
Additional DCP Alok Kumar said the court the application does not have merit since further investigation into the case was underway. Considering Khalid's lawyer Trideep Pais' request to adjourn the case since he received the prosecution's reply only this morning, the Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat adjourned the hearing on bail plea to August 7.
Besides, the Delhi police also pointed out that the Supreme Court has not yet decided on three Special Leave Petitions.
The Delhi High court had recently granted bail to three student activists, Natasha Narwal, Devagana Kalita and Asif Iqbal Tanha, who are also accused under UAPA.
The Delhi Police's supplementary charge sheet in the Northeast Delhi riots case alleged that Khalid "begrudgingly accepted the idea of India in 2016, with a plan to break up India in 2020 where all relations were based on the concept of Ummah, with total decimation of secular, national identities".
