The Delhi Police on Thursday told the Delhi high court that the discharge of Umar Khalid and Khalid Saifi in Khajuri Khas riot case does not mean that there is lack of evidence.

As far as Khalid Saifi and Umar Khalid are concerned, the reason for their discharge is not lack of evidence but because they are being prosecuted in this case.”
“Discharge in the said FIR 101/2020 does not take us to a logical end that there is no evidence against the accused persons,” SPP Prasad added.

The speeches made by Khalid Saifi were identical in nature to the speeches made by Umar Khalid and Sharjeel Imam. He is a resident of Khureji, but he gave speeches in Jamia, the police said

The Delhi high court was hearing Khalid Saifi plea challenging the trial court order denying him bail in the larger conspiracy of the Delhi riots of February 2020. He was denied bail by the Karkardooma Court.

The Delhi high court directed to put up this case on December 12 for further hearing.
