No issue in jail except malicious probe: Umar to court

Former JNU student Umar Khalid, arrested in connection with a Northeast Delhi riots case, informed a Delhi court that he was not facing any issues in jail, apart from curbing of liberties and a malicious investigation. Khalid made these submissions after Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat asked him, "Are your problems now solved in the jail?" Khalid replied, “Except for the curbing of liberties and malicious investigation in the case I have no other problems.”

Khalid and JNU student Sharjeel Imam were produced before the court through video conferencing, where the police moved an application to extend their judicial custody by three days. The court has sent them to judicial custody till November 23 and they will be produced on Monday along with the 15 accused persons in the UAPA case being investigated by the Special Cell of Delhi Police. Trideep Pais, who appeared on behalf of Khalid, told the court that he went through the application for extension of judicial custody.
