    New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday sent former Jawaharlal Nehru University student Dr. Umar Khalid to 10 days police custody after allegedly implicated in a case related to the violence which broke out in Delhi's northeast area in February this year.

    Delhi Police's Special Cell had arrested Dr. Khalid on Sunday night under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, after questioning him for over ten hours. He was produced before Additional Session Judge Amitabh Rawat of Karkardooma court via video-conferencing on Monday afternoon.

    Advocate Trideep Pais, representing Khalid in the case, opposed the remand application and claimed that his client was not in Delhi during the riots.

    Pais said that no reason has been mentioned in the remand application as to why such drawn-out police custody is required. "Application has no base. Why has the police not mentioned which speech of Umar was problematic. What do they want for him in 10 days?" he asked.

    Khalid is also named in charge sheets filed in various cases of the riots.

    Communal violence broke out in northeast Delhi on February 24 after clashes between the citizenship law supporters and protesters spiralled out of control, leaving at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.
