Umar Khalid held for Delhi riots ‘conspiracy’


NEW DELHI: Former JNU student Umar Khalid was arrested late on Sunday by the Delhi Police Special Cell and booked under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act for alleged conspiracy in the riots that had rocked northeast Delhi this February, killing over 50 people.
Police claimed to have found “crucial evidence”, including Khalid’s movement during the riots, after interrogating him about meeting members of ‘United Against Hate’ groups and the Popular Front of India.
Khalid, who is already facing sedition charges for alleged anti-national sloganeering four years ago, will be produced before a court at noon on Monday.
