Delhi: Umar Khalid, Sharjeel Imam to stay in judicial custody till November 23 | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Former student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Umar Khalid on Friday informed a Delhi court that except for curbing of liberty and a malicious case, he was not facing any issues in jail.
The hearing took place after Khalid and another JNU student Sharjeel Imam were produced from jail via videoconferencing on the expiry of their judicial custody period under UAPA case related to northeast Delhi violence.
Additional sessions judge Amitabh Rawat extended the judicial custody of Khalid and Imam till November 23.
Before doing so, the court asked Khalid if the issues faced by the latter had been resolved. Khalid had previously claimed that he was being kept in a sort of solitary confinement. He had informed that the situation had improved from the time he brought his grievance to the court’s notice.
During the hearing, special public prosecutor Amit Prasad sought extension of the judicial custody for three days, indicating that a chargesheet was likely to be filed with the completion of the statutory period of 90 days.
The court had on October 23 extended their judicial custody for a month. Imam had at that time addressed the court from jail and said some of his notes were seized by the prison authorities on the assurance that he would get it back. Imam on Friday said these notes were taken by the duty officers at the prison gates. The court stated that it will hear the matter on November 23.
