The Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat has remanded Khalid to judicial custody till October 22. Today, Khalid was produced before the court after the end of his 10 days of police custody. The police had sought the said custody to confront him with the huge technical data of more than 40GB. The police alleged that Khalid had hatched a conspiracy along with several groups to appeal to various Muslim minority groups to block the roads and public places in Delhi during the visit of President Donald Trump “so that a propaganda may be flashed at international forum that the Muslim minority community in India are being tortured”. It was further alleged that consequent to the conspiracy, riots started in various parts of North East Delhi during February 23-25. Appearing for Khalid before the Additional Sessions Court, Karkardooma, his lawyer Trideep Pais opposed the remand submitting that the police case was nothing but an “empty rhetoric”. Pais submitted that Khalid was always cooperating with the investigation and presented himself for interrogation whenever asked to. So, there was no flight risk. He was interrogated for five hours on July 31 and the whole day on September 13. Still, the counsel submitted, the police could not find anything incriminating against Khalid. Pais further submitted that Khalid’s speeches always appealed for peace and to uphold the Constitution. There was nothing objectionable in them. “Being opposed to the CAA is not a crime”, Pais submitted. The lawyer further said that a frenzy was being created against Khalid. Next Storylast_img
